New launcher update and antivirus detection

1 : Anonymous2021/06/17 16:21 ID: o214v5

There is an issue with the latest update of the tarkov launcher getting picked up by antivirus software.
The Devs are aware and the only fix at the moment is to whitelist the game.

Russia trying to interfere with elections with this update. We all know Tagilla is going to win over Killa.

Did AVG quarinteen a file maybe? see if you can find any reports saying that it has removed files. You should have two folders at least, one will be the launcher itself then another will contain the game files?

I've got banned after updating the game to. I wasn't cheating or anything just updated the game and got banned.

Have you had any reply? I’ve had the same problem. I tried updating my launcher, tried logging in but failed so I reset my password, then had to do a ridiculous amount of captcha and finally when I pressed authorise with the new password it gave me an error message then I pressed it twice more and now it says I’m banned? I also got an email saying I logged in from a new hardware even though I didn’t? Can someone help?

Antiviruses everywhere now recognise Tarkov as the virus it is due to game-breaking lack of wipes.

Sheesh I haven't used an anti-virus in forever. Even Uninstaller windows defender

That's how you get ransomware if you ever download from the internet or click risky stuff

Yeah except you basically can't remove windows defender. You can 'turn it off' but it's still on lol

You need to pre scan everything that is not 100% safe indeed.

My game inventory won’t load after new update! Just spinning and spinning, typical Tarkov. Make new updates only to make the game worse

So this just happened to my buddy just now. If you have nortan security or virus protection on he turned it off and restarted his computer. Clear your cash and check integrity of game files and it was fixed

Thanks, my buddy had me do the same thing and it worked!
