Really need help with a .jar file.
« on: February 16, 2014, 11:40:43 PM »
So I downloaded a game that ran on java, which worked fine for a few weeks, and now all of a sudden, When I try to run it, the loading screen open for about a quarter second and then it closes. Avast then says it saved me from a virus, but I'm 100% sure the file is not a virus. I tried adding it to my exclusions list but nothing happened. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please go to the websites provided by Pondus and upload the suspicious file. For example, you will upload the file to virustotal and scan it. Virustotal will then provide a link with the results. Please post the link here so we can see the results.
