    Steam installed game removes own files at runtime.


    Does anyone have a solution for the problem that pCARS64.exe removes its own files?

    After install started the games chosen quick race, and then a black screen and further nothing.
    Checking this issue I found the steam common directory containing this games files, was only 7xxMb.... Should be around 22 Gb after install.

    I reinstalled the game to see if there was an installation issue. Unfortunatley not the case 22Gb installed..

    Restarted the game and after that check the directory again..... 7xxMb??? Checked if virus protection deleted the files, but nothing in quarentine. Used Sysinternals Process Monitor to find the process deleting the files. To my surprise I found pCARS64.exe or pCARS.exe deleted the files????

    Could you please look into this problem and provide a quick fix???

    Running on Win 10 Home MSI Ge72 2QC gaming notebook.

    Kind regards,

    Are you using Bitdefender? If yes, try this:
