uoc.exe virus?
My game run smoothly, until today my AVG virus scanner updated. I started the game this evening and AVG marked uoc.exe as a virus, placing it in quarantaine and deleting it! I verified my local files through Steam and redownloaded the file, only to find AVG deletes it again. Then I deleted all local content and downloaded the entire game, but AVG keeps deleting the file!
What can I do?

I'm not sure about how AVG works, but you should be able to go into the quarantine and set that particular file to safe, or to be ignored by AVG.

Well, the big problem is that in order to do so, AVG must be switched on. But, when it's switched on, it promptly removes the file again. And when the file is removed, I can't add it to AVG's list of exceptions.
Anyway, I 'fixed' the problem by reinstalling the game on another drive and then telling AVG not to mess with the files.

Norton just removed UOC.exe calling it suspicious.cloud7.exe or something, so is norton and avg wrong or are there some other shenanigans going on here, anyone else get this?

I just got the same thing. Tried to re-download it with 'verify file integrity' and it promptly deleted it again.

just got the same thing, not sure how to handle this, I have Norton for obvious reasons to do a specific job and, thus far, it is doing it very well. I am not really inclined to just "trust" the file.

I just noticed the same thing has happened to me; Norton threw uoc.exe file in quarantine. Has anybody taken this file out of quarantine? Is this safe to do?
Teigetje Sep 24, 2013 @ 11:15pm 
I did, nothing bad happened so far

Thanks Teigetje, after your post, I put it back in and keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks Again!

What can I do?

My AVG let's me just EXCLUDE it. Or in other words make it an EXCEPTION. even if the .exe file is in quaratine you should be able to take it out of quaranteen and make it an exception. In AVG you will probably need to be in the options and then in advanced mode. My AVG 2014 let's me play the game just fine.

Open AVG. select options. select advanced settings. select Exceptions. near the bottom of the page is ADD EXCEPTION. Navigate to the UOC.EXE file in the steam library folder and add it to AVG......done.

mine looks something like this: C:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\unity of command\Eoc.exe
