    I would recommend removing Avast, especially if it is a free service. Your computer likely is already protected enough without additional software. If you have concerns about viruses I recommend using Malwarebytes.

    with all due respect i bought avast and PTCG Live literally the only game/application that having issues connecting etc... seems weird. If I want to play I do need to shutdown all anti virus functions then wait for it to go after the 5/37 loading process then reactivate it. it bothers me every time I open Live while the old TCG had no issues with it whatsoever.

    @RYDAH_ORIGINAL Totally understandable. It is an issue that should definitely be fixed, I offered an alternative solution that could be an immediate workaround for some.

    Having the same issue, has this been fixed yet?? It's a little ridiculous to have to *disable antivirus* to run a game. I've added as an exception and no dice.

    This game is ridiculous to have to shut down Avast, after paying for pre,ium security, This game is not worth all that, either are the cards that I am unable to redeem, due to the fact I cannot play the TCG live game.

    Avast, like all other antivirus software, can report false positives when attempting to run certain programs.

    I’d report the issue via Avast’s channels and wait for a response from them, it is a false positive then they’ll flag it as such and you should be able to run Live without further issue.

    No one needs extra anti virus programs these days as windows own protection is just as good since the time Win10 got released. Extra anti virus programs are even known for slowing PCs down and cause a lot of other issues.
