Ok, this is odd. What is going on?
First Garry's Mod gave me 3 viruses so I uninstalled. Made since I read some people had that issue sometimes with the game.

But now (which is why I am here) left4dead just gave me 2.. Never had a issue with it before, but now 2 games said they got them.

My anti virus program is AVG. It isn't stopping my game, it says "found threats" when I pull up the games and I can choose to skip it, not everytime but I played l4d1 recently and no issues. Now today opening it got me 2 viruses.

The same for me, but you don´t have to uninstall you games.

Go to you AVG options and add you Steam folder to "exceptions" , so you can play you Steam games without problems.

Excuseme for my bad english by the way.

Occasionally i get a warning or two when i join Dedicated servers. Mainly due to ads. So i stay away from those. It could be a false-positive. AVG tends to do that. In my case, the risk level was low-medium (the potentially unwanted kind).

AVG is baaaad , it's detect virus on some of my Retail games disc which are of course obvious false alarm.

Potentially unwanted, like a toolbar that you don't need.

Well I mean, that is why I brought it up. I played these games for a longtime, and recently viruses appeared. So I posted about it for answers.

If they are fake warnings that would make sense.

you could always just deleted the files considered as infected then have steam to verify the cache on both of these games , which will make it download these file again if they are vital to the game.

Just reinstalled, no virus warning on load up. So I think I am fine.

I would delete this thread but I can only edit it. If a Mod sees this, you can delete it for me.
