Anyone know how to fix this?

I've installed the game, and that the first screen you have Story Mode, Network Mode, Offical Website, etc. etc. First time through went well, but when I went on Story Mode the screen was too small for me, so I quit the game and clicked on the PSU icon again to set my options and play the game again with my desired settings.

Gameguard loads up and it seems to be done loading until I get this window popping up;

nProtect GameGuard - Tachyon AntiVirus

Virus has been detected on your PC.

Would you like to stop the infected program from being executed?

virus(spyware) name: Worm/W32.Agent.1956386

status: Healable

path:  'whereever I decided to install PSU'

 

Now here's the thing, he allows me two options, Yes(Heal) or No(Ignore). I've tried both options, No just won't let the game play and Yes brings me to the gameguard website and it offers to scan my PC for viruses, and here you go it shows the 'virus' that it detected earlier and now wants me to pay a fee so that I may 'heal' it or whatever the fuck it means by that.

I've bought this game when it first came out back in '06, and I didn't have this BS problem before, and I sure as hell ain't paying an additional fee for a full version of a second-rate virus scanner, it's just not happening. I decided to uninstall and then reinstall the game again. It always goes back to the same thing, the game will work the first time after the install, but everytime after that it'll keep bring up that ridiculous window for a virus that was never there before that's supposedly coming from the program.

Please can someone offer some advice on this matter?

    Sounds like you computer got a virus from something, I've installed this game plenty of times and it always works for me. Try getting something like avast for a quick virus scan. Its free just make sure you dont get a fake virus scanner from one of the google type websites. =)

    Many Anti-Virus programs will flag GameGuard as a Virus do to how it works and runs.  Try disabling the AV program and see if Gameguard finishes. I know AVG used to bitch about Gameguard all the time lol.

    Ok this really pissed me off too. I had the exact same problem.Here is what you do. Uninstall it....hope it reinstalls. I had problems reinstalling it.

    I did finally get it to reinstall. Immediately go to Network mode and log in. No password or ID needed. Patch the game. Go into your PSU folder, Delete the PsuOff.exe. Copy the Psu.exe and past it in the folder. Rename it PsuOff. You should be good to go. :)

     

    Also don't worry it isn't a virus. It's the gameguard engine and most firewalls antivirus think its a virus/worm. Your game should work if you follow the steps above.
