It's a false positive.
There was a thread on it here a few minutes ago, but somehow it vanished.
Just put the steam-folder on the exception list of your file-shield for now or switch the whole thing off until it gets sorted out.
3rd time in a month that something like this happens. begins to get on my nerves.
DON'T use the exception list in your general settings, this one won't work as it's just for the planned scans and the file-shield will ignore it.

Some have been corrected in streaming updates, the tier0_s.dll tier0_s.dll one is still outstanding.

Report it as a false positive:
There is an on-line contact form, for:  * Sales inquiries; Technical issues; Website issues; Report false virus alert in file; Report false virus alert on website; Undetected Malware; Press (Media), issues.

- If you are reporting an FP, then you get another input field open, click Browse button and navigate to the file to upload for review, etc.
