Sims 4 avast PUP. [SOLVED]

Post by TheSilentLink on Sun 12 Apr 2015, 16:59

Avast is detecting the TS4 file has a pup and virus total says it is a pup too. 

Is this a false positive?

If you are using the G4TW version then yes it's false. You can add it to your exceptions list and you'll be fine Smile!
   Enjoy playing!

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Please note that cracks of modern games are almost always recognized as "virusses" by anti-virus programs, but that doesn't necessarily mean the cracks are virusses indeed.

If you ever have any other questions, feel free to open a new thread. Have fun ! Problem solved, topic closed. Smile 


P.S. this guide here deals with configuring avast, so that it won't mess with your game installation, so you might want to check it out:
