For AVG just restore it from the virus vault and hit "ignore" next time it pops up. >_<
And TW has nothing to do with it.

You guys should really just ditch that third-rate antiviral program and go Avast! :D. It's faster, cooler and all around better.

But for your problem, I'd suggest looking for a 'Game Mode' similar to what Zone Alarm has for it's firewall : it disables some of it's protection that references games.

The preferred outcome of war is peace. Ironic, huh ?

I switched off AVG before running Soldat, I still get this message which prevents me from running it. AVG is completey off, not just the redident shield.

Yeah me too. Just updated the virus def. now. >_< . I re-installed Soldat. Still gives me the Access Denied message even thought AVG is off. :-\
Hmm, downloaded the brand new 1.4 and still gives me some crap.   Oh well, back to studying.

Pfft Soldat is so unhealthy  ;)

AVG released a Prioty update today, but Still finding Soldat to be a virus. Cant anyone contact them and say "Look, there  is a Multimassive online game that is being thought as a virus. TAKE IT OFF YOUR ****ING VIRUS DATABASE LIST!!!!!"

That should slove the problem ^.^

indeed.. i wonder how the hell they could make such a stupid mistake anyway? I mean obviously the bit of code they told it to look out for is not necessarily a virus, so why weren't they more specific? anyway, I emailed them yesterday to ask what could be done about it, with a link to a soldat download mirror.. but no reply.

You forget most companys like AVG are fully up themselfs and will properly;

A) Not email you back
B) Say "There is nothing wrong with our program! It is a virus no matter what you say!"

or

Ello thiz iz tech support in india!

No offensive to the Indians, you guys rock, just the tech support needs a tiny bit of work on

hah, yeah, i don't know if this will ever get fixed.. but it sure puts me in a difficult situation. Soldat is my most played game and I don't want to use an inferior antivirus program.. :'(

I replied a solution twice already, just read the all the post...

ok I got a solution without uninstalling:

1. click at the avg icon
2. click at resident shield
3. turn it off
4. start soldat
5. turn the resident shield on again

Edit: AVG, keeps giving pop-ups, so I just leave it off.. till someone has a better solution

you can also ignore the pop ups you get after starting soldat.

this is not a permanent solution, just wait till it gets fixed (which may never happen) or get another virus scanner

Your solution doesn't always work, PQ. Turning off resident shield worked for me yesterday, but not today.
Maybe the release of 1.4.1 will magically resolve this problem, but we should have an email sent to AVG.

I sent AVG an email, because I have a valid license with them I should get a reply pretty quick. Usually they just say "Sorry but your software has a virus, we are right and you are wrong."

Maybe some code change in soldat.exe & recompile will solve the problem...

Thanks EnEsCe.
Please let us know what the reply was when you get it.

PS: I don't have too much faith in this. I also think they will just claim that Soldat.exe does contain a virus. After all, they're offering a free scanner, so they don't have any obligations to the free users. It's a shame for those who paid for it if this happens to be true.

Hmm, make sure you don't run Soldat before you turned the shield off. If you have the "white window" instead of a Soldat icon, you should restart your PC I suppose.

I have this kinda problem too. It occured yesterday I think, when avg said it's a trojan. So I accidentally healed it -> delete. So when somehow Windows didn't let me paste a new soldat.exe to that directory, I installed soldat all over again to the same directory (and after this I also tried to install it to different directory) on the top of the old Soldat. In some point the icon went white. I switched off avg, so I got rid of its warnings, but there still is this Window's warning, that says: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

at first I was getting problems, but now, on clean 1.4 install, disabling the resident shield avoids the whole 'access denied' problem.

always click ignore, and never heal, for AV progs simply delete the file

Reminder to all soldat players with Soldat
1. Turn off network connections (internet)
2. Turn off residential shield
3. Load Soldat
4. Turn on residential shield
5. Turn on Network Connections (internet)

That is the safest way, because whilst you are playing, you have no protection from viruses.
But you can turn everything back on again when you've loaded soldat.
