It seems some people have been receiving virus warnings from Avast regarding TSE2 freeware.
As far as I'm aware, these are false positives. I'm running McAfee locally, which reports no issues.

Has anybody else had any issues with their AV software and the game?

I have this problem with Avast.

Is there any workaround to fix this?

It deleted my .exe Sad What a retardation. They may as well suddenly call the recycle bin a virus.

I was having this problem with Avast v4.8, but I just installed v5.0 and it now seems to be working just fine.

I had this issue, even with Avast v5. I reported it as a false positive but fortunately you can get avast to ignore it in the meantime if you're still having issues.

For v5, just open the avast user interface, go to the Real Time Shields tab, select the File System Shield subcategory, then go to Expert Settings --> Exclusions, and add the install location of TSE2 to the list.
