avg seems to give false positives too often in my past experience. i been using avast and it works great.

funny i found some malwares (for me i found 12 of malwares) come with a small patch that follow a capsule update. they can't be detect by avast but by malwarebytes and windows defender. fake them self as a dot net file and cause cpu run 50% all the time. lucky, they still can remove by malwarebytes and windows defender.

Avast is not really for malware. that where malware bytes comes in. if you run a 3 tear protection on Avast, MB, and Spybot S&D it will catch anything out there and will not mess with games

There is no malware in the Steam updates.
