Antivirus Software

Antivirus software scans a computer's memory and storage to identify and eliminate viruses. Below you'll find a list of security programs that are considered game friendly. Before you download one, keep these tips in mind:

  • To ensure a detailed scan of the system's files, we recommend running security scans with multiple security programs.
  • To avoid complications, never run multiple real-time protection programs at same time. For example, Avast and Kaspersky provide real-time protection and should not run simultaneously.
  • Install one program that provides real-time protection and one program to run on-demand security scans.
  • Run your antivirus scan while the game launcher and game are open to help detect issues affecting the program.
 
Real-Time Protection: Antivirus Software

Note: Many antivirus programs periodically issue software updates. Make sure your antivirus programs are up-to-date before beginning your scan.

On Demand Security Scans: Anti-Spyware

Spyware programs can crash the game, minimize the game window, and cause connection issues. Anti-Spyware software scans a computer's applications and storage space for Spyware programs. As with antivirus software, you should never run more than one scan at a time.
