Hi,

Has anyone else had their antivirus detect "Grand Theft Auto San Andreas" or any of the other GTA games as a threat?

AVG Popped up with the following as soon as I loaded SA to start playing.

Threat: General behavioral detection

Object name: E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto San Andreas\gta-sa.exe

anti viruses have a false positive alert.that mean:a file that real haven't got any viruses,show that has a virus.for that,try in diffrent anti viruses(like eset).if it again say file has virus,then update the anti virus,scan all computer then reinstall the game.if it does not help,you should create a rule for antivirus that exculed GTASA.exe from detection.like that:(it is in eset)

or the last way is to disable your anti virus when playing game.

If that's a cracked exe file, then it might explain as to why your AV flagged it.

I bought the game off Steam if that is what you are referring to.

Ain't there a way to add that file as an exception? But I don't think AVG is a really good anti-virus, I'd suggest using the good ol' Microsoft Security Essentials instead, much better and more reliable! That's just my opinion though. tounge.gif
