Evidently Microsoft didn't understand my question as this was essentially their answer:

What is Bcmihvui64.dll?

Bcmihvui64.dll is a type of DLL file associated with Broadcom Native 802.11 WLAN IHV Service Extension UI developed by Broadcom Corporation for the Windows Operating System. The latest known version of Bcmihvui64.dll is 5.60.350.11, which was produced for Windows 7. This DLL file carries a popularity rating of 1 stars and a security rating of "UNKNOWN".

Another thing, does Norton always define the developer by the product? Because as noted in the first post Norton lists the developer as Microsoft Corporation although it was developed by Broadcom Corporation for Windows OS.

Was the driver update done with Windows updates? That could explain why the developer is listed as MS, as they have Qualified the driver for use on Windows systems.

The 'Poor' rating is probably just because not enough Norton users have that particular file yet. As more users get it, the rating should change.

If you want another opinion, you can always submit the file to virustotal.

Re: Norton Insight gives bcmihvui64.dll "poor" after driver update

Though not available in Windows updates, I updated the driver manually with the device manager. I occasionally check drivers this way even if there are no apparent problems. In your opinion, is this a bad habit? I figured the update was safely tested by the developer prior to its' release but I have seen some evidence to the contrary with some of the Windows updates. btw, thank you for the link.

Hello

I would recommend updating drivers by going directly to the manufacturing company's website and looking for the driver according to the model of the product and according to the bitness of your computer and also by o/s. You can go also to the maker of your computer and get updates for drivers from them. You can also go to the maker of your motherboard and go to the page for your motherboard model and o/s and bit.

Computer manufacturers have drivers that are specific to your computer model. As an example, you may be able to get newer drivers for your graphics adapter from the maker of the graphics adapter. ie Nvidia. But if the graphic hardware is in a laptop, it may be better to stick to the drivers provided by the laptop manufacturer for compatibility reasons.
