Avast is kinda a horrible program tbh. Windows defender and malwarebytes are plenty enough if anything gets past that you was targeted from the start and was meant to be hacked. Other then that id suggest allowing it a exception on your firewall status as the ani cheat is reading memory to see if your running 3rd party and most likely whats flagging the game.

AVG and avast reported the malware because the simple answer is it not falls ...its is indeed malware ..maybe not for malicious purpose but to gather info on the user to sell a more products that you don't need ....this is common practice >>Google does it all the time maybe not so direct because they ask for permission at least ..Apex has an option called Usage Sharing ..it's another tool they use to gather info on you ..TURN iT off .......This fall malware thing is not the first time it happened on Apex ..and there is no reason why the game Consumes so much data per hour ...Past two days i used 12 GB , more then what i spend Youtube and that saying something

AVast es el problema. Lo tengo en modo silencioso y me borró el ejecutable sin saberlo. Reinstale el juego porque no me habia dado cuenta Frown

I'm not changing Avast's exception rules! I'm going to wait for an update which fixes this issue, since this error wasn't present before...

Same issue here, except when I added exceptions I now have and issue which states the game executable is invalid?
