Howdy,

 

As I am trying to bring here, so far as it is a big topic in ESET Forum. The Radeon software in my case rightnow I'm using the latest one 19.7.2 with a RX 580 Rog Strix 8gb.


Everytime I try to use "game explorer" to set up different settings, my payed ESET Internet security freaks out poping lots of warnings and respective blocks.

 

http://amd.systemrequirementslab.com/ - Eset report "This web page is on a list of websites with uncertain reputation or potentially unwanted content and has been blocked."

Reporting, reading info, I've found that this is not a case of false positive. As reply made by Eset admin "The application served by the blocked address is detected as  Win64/SystemRequirementsLab PUA so the PUA block is ok and it's not a false positive. The question is why on earth RadeonSettings.exe attempt to access that url."

This is too frustrating. Being customer of both companies and deal with this. What it is happening with this link? If it truly is a false positive, is it trusteful? ESET thinks not!!! Then AMD staff can verify and explain to ESET.

 

please can you have a look in this?

 

My eset log file have hundred of "Blocked by PUA blacklist"

Thanks your attention.
