Avast virus chest files cannot be restored
« on: January 07, 2021, 01:44:25 PM »
Hi,

I've downloaded a game (Teardown) from  a reliable source, after downloading it I even scanned it for a virus. Nothing was found and I was able to play the game without any problems. But today for some reason avast put an IDP.generic file (part of the game's .exe ) to the virus chest. When I click on restore file, a message saying "this file cannot be restored" pops up.

Is there something I can do about it? I really dont want to reinstall the game again.

Thanks for replies,
Tobias
