    10/28/2008 2:41:58 PM Real-time file system protection file C:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\fallout 3\FalloutLauncher.exe probably unknown CRYPT.WIN32 virus cleaned by deleting - quarantined NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM Event occurred on a new file created by the application: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe.

    I've managed to bypass the problem by exempting Steam Folder from scanning so I'm able to play but I was wondering if ESET knew about the problem and was planning on fixing it or if it's behavior is too virus like to fix.

    NOD32 is only one to pick it up this way according to VirusTotal: ~Link removed per Policy. - Ron~
