    ok, ive just set mine to max>medium>medium.

    no detection on right-click scan, and no detection on custom scan of that file within the programs GUI either.

    just running a hitman pro scan, no detection is popping up either.

    im running prevx version 3.0.5.50 and hitman pro x64 build 84

    We periodically flag drivers similar to this because Prevx intentionally flags kernel mode code with a much higher level of heuristics than usermode programs (because of the increase in risk once something reaches kernel mode).

    If you could please send a scan log to report@prevxresearch.com, I'll see what we can do to prevent this from occurring in the future on the Hitman Pro drivers.

    Thanks! :)
