Why is detected like a riskware? Is not have regular tests from Kaspersky? Or is a fail in the programing of the software?

Please check if is a real riskware.

Well thanks. I know for my antivirus Kaspersky is a riskware.
But why don't say to developer: Hey! Your software has many strange things and a lot of trash (unwanted software) take off this and this and your software now is safe! If is a very good software then ask for suscription or a TIP.

Hello Ricardo,
The detections are not exclusive to Kaspersky.
Anyone can ingnore alerts, but, the risks taken are a personal choice/responsibility.
We understand, when/if Kaspersky software presents detections, it can be worrying, however, sometimes, the detections are false positives.
When the expert team are engaged, they analyse and, if a "false" detection is confirmed, they fix.
If, a false/positive is confirmed and Kaspersky makes a decision to maintain the detection, the expert team advise whomever has escalated the queries, the reasons to maintain the status of the objects/sites.
Your questions would be happily answered by the expert team:

Re: "why not say to developer: "Hey! Your software has many strange things and a lot of trash/unwanted software, to make it compliant, take off this and this and your software now is safe! If it is a very good software then ask for subscription or a TIP."?

Because it's a developers job to know what features of their products will potentially be flagged as "Riskware" and to refine their products so they're compliant.

It's not Kaspersky's or any other AV providers job to search the Internet and tell every developer, "your software is a problem because of a.b.c.d, do x.y.z make it compliant.

You could raise a request with DriverPack developers, asking them to remove the "many strange things and a lot of trash/unwanted software".

A quick search shows many people asking similar questions to your OP. (imo) DriverPack developers already know, they prioritize making money and pushing riskware as opposed to customer care.
