    Well, I had to look up what AVG was and wasn't sure if I found the right thing.

    So I added this to the FAQ:
    Is that fair enough? Anything more to add?

    I wouldn't say (fix its settings), sounds complicated and doesn't focuses on the point... Say to just disable AVG protection, or add a way of enabling the game through the Anti-virus.

    Have you found a way to enable the game through AVG? Or did you have to disable it altogether?

    I tried to find a way but...All the tutorials show that it uses the AVG's firewall, yet, I have the basic protection, which doesn't includes firewall... :shrug

    So my guess is, disable AVG for the game to save properly.

    But... I use AVG (latest free version) on Windows 8 and nine times out of ten, I can save the game just fine. o_O

    i was only joking, of course people are creating their own problems sometimes but not ONLY. I just meant that without computers the problems in life might not be enough and we might have to create some more ourselfes. Anyway ;)

    @ Oneironz
    i´m using McAfee AntiVirus Plus since many years and it didn´t disturb my games and my performance at all. It is an AIO Product with Antivirus, Antispyware and Firewall included. If you like you could try that one out. I always order it every year from AMAZON for a cheap price:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/McAfee-AntiVirus-Plus-2013-Subscription/dp/B008TIUY1K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372917900&sr=8-1&keywords=mcafee antivirus plus 2013
    Just a friendly recommendation from a Pirate :pflag

    I use McAfee too and it likes to drive me nuts. Installs updates without me telling it to, then reboots in the middle of a movie I'm watching.
    Then when it goes on its periodic virus scan, my computer becomes dead slow. :facepalm

    @HyliePistoff
    It isn't bullshit, my Avg runs on stock settings but somehow it messed up with this particular game for no aparent reason.

    @piratesjunkie
    Thanks for the tip, I'll stick with the free Avg though, I just need to disable temporarly, no big deal :)

    This is all just a matter of correct Configuration. If you want my support in this, i could send you screenshots of mine as an eMail attachment zipped with WINRAR or any other way you would like. Just let me know :doff

    And loool Pieter :p just disable any scheduled tests and run an anti-virus/malware scan during the night, it should have an option to shut the pc down after the check.

    Or talk with piratesjunkie, he's the master on McAfee :-D
