Trojan Horses in The Sims 4, GTW and GTG. [SOLVED]

Post by DutchieGoes on Fri 19 Feb 2016, 22:28

My anti-virus software (Norton) found some Trojan Horses. Am I supposed to ignore these because it's a cracked game? Because right now the game is not working. I keep getting the 'Origin is not running' error. I think that these files being in quarantine might be the problem. Is it safe to unblock these files or will I get a virus on my computer?? 

I hope someone can help me with this asap, thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome to the forum @DutchieGoes,

Yes, due to the fact that modern pirated games are always (!) detected as virusses, you can/should configure your anti-virus exceptions accordingly. See also e.g. this other topic here for related explanations.

So yes, for now please unblock these quarantined files and try the game again. Good luck !

Thanks for your help, the 64 bits version works fine now (apart from one crash after I just started playing).

Sorry for the late reply,


If you are interested, you need to do additional tweaking though, if you are running the TS4_x64.exe and in the event you want to have the game in a display language other than English. See the topic here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t22096-experimental-language-change-and-the-ts4_x64-exe


Good luck again, and I'll leave the thread open for now. Smile
