    The same problem just started happening to me today after 61 hours played. Kaspersky just deletes the pcars2 exe file. What is going on? I opened a support ticket with Kaspersky. Are you guys creating an exception for just the exe application or the whole folder? I set up an exclusion for just the application and Kaspersky deleted it again.

    We're already discussing this somewhere else ... But ...

    Test for Pcars2.exe in Virustotal

    Seems to be a False Positive

    I tried again and added pcars2.exe to the Kaspersky exclusion list. Game is launching fine now.

    Strange what happens. Added the whole folder to exceptions but launching the game KAV deletes it again and thus I have Steam 0x5 error. Once restored launched pcars2.exe manual scan and no problems reported.
    Launching the game and deleted once again. Disabled KAV restored the game and it works. Waiting Kaspersky to fix

    My advice is to not use Kaspersky Anti Virus at all, as it always was a strange AV

    UPDATE: After Pc reboot no need to disable antivirus. So adding pcars2.exe to exceptions is enough
