    A few pages back there was an issue where the NVMe driver installer would not run. This was happening to me and was driving me up a wall, but the callout that there were 'security improvements' made me remember something I ran into a long time ago. Basically some executables are vulnerable to dll injection and need to be run from an empty folder, or from somewhere that isn't the default downloads location, to avoid being attacked from existing malware in the same folder. So I created a new folder, moved the driver installer into there, and it ran successfully.

    Hope this helps someone else in the future.
    You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you SO much for posting this. Never encountered something similar before.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I actually had to re-install Magician from scratch, I guess it didn't like my latest Windows version.

    All is good now

    I had to reinstall previous version, that it updated to this one. Lost ability to check health of my 960 evo, worked only for 970 evo plus.

    I have a 980 Pro in a Z370 rig, so running at PCIE gen-3. I just updated the firmware from 4B2QGXA7 to 5B2QGXA7 and ran the default Samsung Performance Benchmarks. All of my scores dropped a little. I have another 980 Pro in an X570 rig so am going to try that one next. Some people are reporting significant increases in random reads and writes but I am not seeing that. Maybe it has something to do with running at PCIE gen-3 or maybe its a Windows 10 verses Windows 11 thing. I am on Windows 10 build 19044.4503 on both machines so it will be interesting to see what the drive in the X570 rig does.
