It's a Virus. I don't trust all this anti cheat stuff. The same developers can abuse the code to let their friends cheat anyway. I thought it would be fun loading Quake2 after years of not playing but the asswipes have taken over,,,, as usual.

No, anticheat has been instrumental in clearing the "asswipe" cheats from the servers.  tongue

It is a false positive as has been reported before. I have sent notifications to the AV vendors, but they are not very fast at fixing it unfortunately.

AntiVir and AVG have now removed the false positive as of the latest virus definitions.

I've sent a copy too, they have yet to update their detections. For now just tell Mcafee to ignore / exclude it.
