AVG picking tf2 files up as an archive bomb
Weel since a couple of days ago AVG hs been going nuts claiming that TF2 files are really archive bombs so for the first time i played along, uninstalled an resintalled tf2 but for a second time it is coming up with the same thing.

Is this just avg having a hissy fit once again or is this something I should look into?

What is an archive bomb?

An archive bomb is a file that is repeatedly compressed. These archives can cause scanners or other programs to crash or hang because of intensive resource consumption during the scanning of hundreds of levels of archives within archives.
F-PROT Antivirus now flags archive files it finds suspicious and alerts the user that the file "could be an archive bomb".

I'm not exactly sure what it may be, but it does seem rather important.
