Seems like this AVIRA is pretty hungry. How is it "eating" your games? Is it trying to block you from playing or what? Are there any notifications that pertain to this problem that you may need to show?

I mean, AVIRA is eating my games .exe files. example is : prototyope.exe and gta-sa.exe and nba2k12.exe those files. but not all of them but most of them.

It's either the scanner or your games. Where are the games from? Can you just physically tell your program to stop putting it on the quarantine?

So when it's on, it automatically puts your games on the quarantine? Well honestly, I don't know anything about this scanner so I can't really tell you what to do. My best advice is to get a different scanner like MS SE and if they're still a virus after being on two scanners, you may have a problem with your games.

It's okay, Let's wait for someone to answer. or i will just get a new antivirus.

I think the first thing one should do it scan those games and see if they really are infected. Avira just might be doing the job it should be doing.
You state the games come for your computer and a friends computer.
**Where did you and your friend get the games that you have on your computers and what method was used?**

Millions of people in the world use this.
