AVG blocks game?
Says there is a virus connected to it. Anyone else having this problem? It took forever to install and load and then never loaded and AVG popped up saying it needed to be blocked.

I use Norton, and it has never thought there was a virus.

False positive, turn off AVG, install game, open AVG in the options make an exception. Google AVG exceptions for more details. I don't have AVG but you should make an exception for the entire steam folder to prevent this from happening again.

I just find it weird that it only does it for this game, not my others but I will, thanks

Yea it's uncommon. I have Avira and have had this happen twice, I can't remember which games but they were both obscure titles I got with bundles.

What I know for sure though is Steam has strict requirements for game uploads and everything is thoroughly tested.

AVG randomly flags the odd Steam game of mine. Even brand knew, released that week games.

Once it crashes me to desktop because of the lock up, I just make an exception for the game from the pop up AVG window that caused the crash.

It's happened maybe 3-4 times to me in my entire time using Steam. So it's not too much of a concern yet lol.

This is the first game you've owned that it has happened to. Where others, including myself, have games this has happened to before. In addition to AVG, I have Malwarebytes. It's very good and can be used for free. When in doubt, scan the file with Malwarebytes.
