The antivirus found a virus

Antivirus is not only a protector of your computer from malicious files, but also a way to combat piracy. Virtually all cracks and patches are, by default, blacklisted by the vast majority of antivirus software (both paid and free). That’s why the antivirus reacts to these files as potentially dangerous, to scare off lazy and uninformed users from downloading them and leaving negative comments. If you want to avoid «viruses» (cracks), purchase games officially from stores if you have doubts, and avoid downloading anything from torrent sources. Our website only hosts verified distributions.

  • Question: But I downloaded games from other websites, and there were no viruses there, while here the antivirus found a trojan in other games.
  • Answer: It’s quite possible that you downloaded games that don’t require cracking (e.g., GOG licenses or initially free games), and these games didn’t have cracks. That’s why your antivirus didn’t trigger on them.

How to fix this error?

  • To solve such a situation, just turn off the anti-virus program on your PC before starting to download the game.
