Is DriversHQ Driver detective a malware?

According to the user reviews over on CNET, Driver Detective is probably "crapware", although not specifically malicious.

Like Diago mentions, there are plenty of sites distributing legit software with malware attached. Often best to run some anti-malware scans just in case.

+1 Just because the Geek referred to me in his answer :) – BinaryMisfit Jul 30 '09 at 20:22

According to this the correct answer is no.

I am aware however of some sites distributing it without permission and it does contain malware, however this type of software you should only ever install from the original source.
