Garry's Mod
« on: November 29, 2014, 05:25:32 PM »
Hello

For whatever reason today everyone in Garry's Mod community who use Avast as their main anti-virus ran into problems starting the game.
When you try to start the game, avast quarantines the hl2.exe file. Stating that it's something called "Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]".

I assume that someone falsely reported the file. And I hope that someone at Avast sees this thread and fixes the problem.

Thanks.

I did read his request. His request does not make my links useless.

Well...

When you try to start the game, avast quarantines the hl2.exe file. Stating that it's something called "Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]".

You can report a possible FP here: http://www.avast.com/contact-us.php?subject=VIRUS-FILE

Great, thank you very much. I instantly did that. No doubt someone else might have done it as well by now.  :)

That's... just the Steam forums. Doesn't have anything to do with my issue besides what's written in the thread in that link.

Same precise issue here. I can't open Gmod at all at the moment, even clicking to restore the file and add it to the exclusion list doesn't seem to stop it.
I can verify the cache on Gmod to make it download another hl2.exe but avast immediately throws up the same warning and quarantines it.

I've reported it as a false positive.
