    You are downloading driverupdater. Im using slimdrivers.
    It's the same thing. They've changed their website. The old one was slimdrivers dot net

    Look here:

    Download SlimDrivers 2.3.1

    Then click the "visit homepage" link in the left pane.

    On another note my AV doesn't like it but it just installs extras like slimcleaner when you run the installer.

    Installed anyway but just to test. I've used it in the past but like I said not for sound/ graphics drivers.

    I've started using this instead:

    Snail Driver 2 Lite Download | Windows Driver Updater by SnailDriver

    But I still check if i really need the detected drivers before installing them and only install after making a system image backup.

    That one is also blocked by Defender as a PUA (aka PUP)....

    It comes bundled with extras but is not malicious:

    SlimDrivers | Gizmo's Freeware

    Like I said I've stopped using it but would only use it for scanning outdated drivers before doing some research.

    EDIT:

    Registry changes made on install. I rejected run on boot entry. I have not kept the software installed either.

    Suggest delete your downloaded installers (setup files) then try installing the older version:

    Download SlimDrivers 2.2.45206.63218 - FileHippo.com

    Move downloaded file to desktop then right click it and choose "run as administrator"

    See it that works.

    Successfully installed from
    Download SlimDrivers - MajorGeeks

    Do you have UAC off? I found it generated a UAC prompt.
    I didn't have to run as admin specifically (I'm logged in as admin) and didn't need to use compatibility mode.

    I'm using build 1709 and Avast AV (not Defender) as you can see from my specs.

    Note that by default it's set to run at startup; you can disable that via its options.

    Beware

    This program offers useful protection from such 'added extras':

    Suggest you enable UAC. (I had it enabled). Note - I don't use Windows Defender.

    Try disabling Smartscreen
    Safe Fix for on Windows 10

    Is your Windows 32 bits, and the program 64 bits? That would give this message too.
