AVG detecting Audiosurf as Virus? [SOLVED]
Hi guys, does anyone have a fix for this? My AVG is detecting the QuestViewer.exe as a trojan. I've tried adding it to 'allowed list', and ignoring the alert, but it doesn't help. :(
The demo worked absolutely fine, so I don't know why it is only just alerting me about this.

EDIT: Thanks LividJava for helping. View his topic here:

I have both AVG(free edition) and Audiosurf. However, this doesn't happen to me.

Mine is free edition as well.
It flashing up that it is a 'Trojan Horse Generic33.AKOW'.
I click ignore, but it continues to flash up when I try to run the game :(

But if I click to remove the threat, it says the data is invalid and cannot be deleted?

Mine did this too.

Did you find a way to fix it? :)

I was using Audiosurf yesterday without any issues on the same computer. Today i received the same message as you and AVG has always been up and before Audiosurf worked perfectly fine. Now I have the same issue and Audiosurf crashes. I removed Steam and Audiosurf from my computer and then redownloaded everything. I'm still having the same issue. Help?

I tried playing the demo and it happened to me too :(

I've heard that there was a new update in AVG that has caused it treat Audiosurf as a trojan, but I'm not sure how to fix it, or even if it's affecting any of my other games :/

umm i have an idea For AVG USERS ONLY but you have to figure the rest out for your self pm me for more assitance ok so what you need to do is click on Options>Advanced Settings>Exceptions>Add Exceptions>(where ever you installed steam)>steam apps>QuestVeiwer

EDIT: Click on add Exceptions and Click Folder or file whick ever floats you boat (file is better since it bybasses the folder durring a scan) and where ever you installed steam if you cant find it ill help you i just need a few things and ill set you up. then it will open up this file browser thingy just look for steam
