    When I try to start up CS:S, trend micro antivirus keeps saying that hl2.exe is infected, and it just won't me start the game. Didn't start happening until today, and I haven't even played at all today. Says it found TROJ_GENERIC.ADV

    Run virus checks update computer, run virus/spykillerwhatever again. Make sure computer is clear. OH yeah you need to re install css.

    ignore it if you are trying to lunch it with steam

    After some research, turns out it's a false alarm. It's a problem with Trend Micro Antivirus, so I'm going to have to uninstall that and get a new antivirus before I can get back to css :rolleyes:

    O_o kav ftw but i think it said it was a TROJ_GENERIC.ADV because steam updates it self a updates lunches game so your anti virus assumes that it is lunching a virus to hurt to your comp sorry for enyy typos

    dude just type it "avg 8.0 free" in google and get that. Yea you have to update it yourself but it's free. Well technically it is suppose to only be for trial purpose only but you will be fine. Use it on my laptop and it works great and isn't a whore on resources.

    i'd suggest either Kaspersky Antivirus, or NOD32 antivirus. From the research i've done, these two typically have the lowest false positives while having a higher virus finding rate (no antivirus is 100%)

    So that means you have something in common with avg then right???
