Anti-Rootkit Shield is Causing Some Game to Crash on Launch
« on: October 12, 2019, 04:32:44 AM »
After a bit of trial and error (and some back and forth with tech support), I have discovered that Avast's Anti-Rootkit Shield is somehow crashing some games as they start up.  The games work fine when the shield is turned off.

Has anybody else had this issue?  What causes this?
