Does Avast stop games playing??
« on: January 20, 2020, 07:15:10 PM »
I play a game called Cities Skyline and yesterday I downloaded over 2500 assets (extra buildings, roads, etc) and tried to play the game afterwards. It took 15mins to load instead of 3, and when I got to the opening screen where you see your city, it crashed! Now today I go and play today and it is showing as it needs to be installed in my Steam library!!?? It also shows that all the DLC's I have bought are not installed!! I have that loading screen mod and it showed that all the memory was in the red so I know I need more RAM if I want to run this many assets. But why has the game apparently uninstalled??  I went onto the Steam page for this game and asked a question on there and one of the answers was about an anti virus that might think the game is a virus and stop it form loading etc?  Does AV stop games from playing??
