So after latest patch/update at least Avast and AVG seem to think Apex is virus? Something to worry about or just skip it?

Hi all. 

This does appear to be a false positive of course -they do happen from time to time- but we'll investigate what's happening here. 

Thanks for the posts.

Make an exception folder path for origin and apex. That's the only way if u want to play.

DIdn't work for me.  I made exceptions over and over, and Avast doesn't care, it just goes over my authoritah and deletes it again.
