    Happened to me yesterday evening. I uninstalled Kaspersky and installed Avast - no problems with deleted pcars2.exe now.

    Virus in pCARS2.exe ?

    My Kaspersky (up-to-data) anti virus software is reporting an Dangerous Object in pCARS2.exe after downloading the most recent update from steam.

    Does someone have the same issue. Is it confirmed that the pCARS2.exe file is not affected by a virus? How can I validate that I do download a virus free software?

    No virus, just Kasperski telling nonsense (what a surprise ).

    What evidence do you have that there is no virus in the pCARS2.exe? Being affected by a virus could happen to SMD as well - and the previous exe files where running fine. I think it is way to easy just to move on or just disable any anti virus software.

    I do expect an official statement by SMD that they checked that they are not distributing a virus affected file via steam.

    It's just a false positive.

    I assume you mean SMS...

    Don't you think maybe Steam has some fairly robust AV detection when a file is uploaded for distribution?.. as a firm hosting 10s of T bytes of software, I'd expect them to take that fairly seriously.. wouldn't you?

The game launch good, but, in complete screen, when i minimize the game and try to maximize again the game crash and the screen comes black. Could be that aobuot lastest update from windows !0: "fall creator"? Corrupted drivers...?? I don't now. Any solution for this problem?
