Hello, I'd like to report a possible conflict between the free anti-virus software avast and the Destiny 2 main process.
During a normal session, I tried streaming my screen, specifically d2 into a discord call. As soon as I tried this, the antivirus (AVAST) sent a pop up with this text and closed the program. The anti virus would not let me restart the game until I paused the protection.
The following is taken from the detections log file of the anti virus. I have found no other event in the files.

This has been posted in the corresponding bungie forums, but I was asked to report this to avast as well.

Hi,

Can you please report the file "destiny2.exe" via https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php

is there any way to report it without uploading a file or citing a website? The executable file is about twice the file size limit for false positive uploads.

Hey, you still haven't refunded $97.74 that you took out of my account.

Your question appears unrelated to the title of this thread concerning Destiny 2.
