Virus False Positive + Steam Issues (Possible Fix)

Postby Delerious » Fri Sep 14, 2012 7:56 pm

Hey there,

I have been looking forward to this game for a while. I purchased it from steam, and was disappointed to get the false positive virus report from NOD32.

A work around is to temporarily disable your NOD32 Active protection
Delete the local content of FTL from steam
Re-download FTL

Now, the above should get you going, but I had the added problem of FTL pausing the update at the last 98% or so. Resuming the download did nothing but cause the download pause again. A simple reboot seemed to fix this issue.
So if you encounter the pausing issue, reboot your PC and then disable your AV once again to finish out the download and reactivate your AV once done.

Have fun.
