Hello. I'm having problem, that my Windows Defender detects APB.exe as an virus. I had APB installed on my laptop and playing it for a very long time and everything was ok. I have to change my SSD in laptop, so i have to download it again and i done it a week ago. The game was working since today. I launched the event district, and game crashed after ~5 minutes of low fps gameplay. In same moment Defender said that he detected something. I scanned my laptop and deleted this file and scanned it and there wasn't any warning. I launched APB Launcher, he downloaded some files and when i launched the game Defender warned me about danger again. I uninstalled whole APB, scanned Windows few time (even Offline Scan) and made a recovery point because there wasn't any signs of virus presence. Then i downloaded a new client from official website like always when i have to download APB, and after installation Defender was quiet, but when i launched game, he warned me and i have to struggle with the same situation. I will add that event with this 'virus' my laptop doesn't seemed corrupted ; usage of disc, GPU, processor etc. was stable, and did not differ from the normal usage. (CPU ~3% [with game off ofc], disck ~1%, memory ~35%). I'm using ASUS Vivobook S15 16GB i5 NVIDIA GFORCE mx 250 with custom SSD (Samsung 970 EVO Plus). If anyone had same problem or know what can i do to safely play APB please answer me. Thank you in advance. (the potentially unwanted application has been removed or restored, priority low)
So after a month and an update I decided to start APB only to get a notification about how BitDefender decided it's an actual virus. Now I trust you guys, but I also trust my antivirus (if you have seen the statistics, BitDefender alongside with Kaspersky are the best ones out there with the highest success rate of catching an actual virus and realizing it's false-positive). I am downloading it via Steam right now, as the one I launched was from your website. It worked before, nothing bad happened, but clearly the update brought something in that AV (mis)took for a virus. Anyone else got this?
