I'm a bit of a novice, so any help would be appreciated...

Many posts refer to using Cuda to measure Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth (H2D?).

I'd like to test it on my Yoga 920 + Aurus 1080 Gaming Box setup, but Norton security quickly uninstalls the Cuda software following installation from here:

http://cuda-z.sourceforge.net/

Norton uninstall

Is this common?  Does everybody have to turn off anti-virus to use this software?

If not, how does one check proper bandwidth of EGPU builds?

Thanks all.

@flyer i'm using the same version with Avast Free without any problems.Most likely it's a false positive.You need to report it in their forum and also look for a option to whitelist it.Don't worry,there is no virus in it  🙂

P.S. I just did more research and found THIS which confirms that it's false positive so you good(the reply is from the creator of CUDA-Z and can be trust it)
