Yes, but then when I turn it back on then it discovers the virus and removes the file.
So I have to repair the installation every time I run the game. This is not an acceptable solution for a commercial product. And I have never known this problem with any other game, so the issue needs to be resolved. And I should not have to leave my system open to viruses during the period when the game is running.
I too do not like leaving my computer unprotected when I play. Then having to do the whole “verify integrity of the game cache” over and over because as soon as I stop playing and re-activate McAffee, a file gets detected as virus and quarantined. This is absolute madness!
