This sofware works for NVIDIA and ATI/AMD
If you already have them, you can also use Nvidia Inspector/RadeonPro (AMD)
See the FAQ for more info or ask in the forums/pages
Antivirus programs can false detect this as a generic/troyan
Is a false positive,
upload the original zip instaler to your antivirus company
requesting to be marked as false positive
Give also the url to the original place where you download the program
They will analyze it and sometimes reply
Even if they flag this as false positive in the next update,
they will eventually forget and delete the software again without warning,
be sure when you are convinced this is a legit software,
to add it to the trusted/exclusion list,
or set your Antivirus software to ask your permission to delete something
