Why my AVG virus scan don't allow me to openen a file.

Postby RoelGellings » Mon Oct 25, 2010 10:41 am

Ey, I have to open an .exe file but when I try I get an error and AVG comes up with a messages that this file might have a virus.
But I'm sure it doesn't. Also AVG says something like: To be sure you are protected we don't allow you to open this file.(Translated from dutch)
But it's my pc right? So I gues I'm the only one who decides if I can open that file or not... So can I disable this somewere at the AVG settings?
Thanks if I get a useful answer.

What's the file and the path to the file, and what OS are you running. What version of AVG?

AVG versie: 10.0.1152

OS? what you mean with that

And the file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction\src\system\conviction_game.exe
