Windows 7: Specific .exe file being removed.

28 Dec 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Specific .exe file being removed.

I am struggling to install two programs. The first being LOLReplay and the second being BaronReplays. I can manage to install both but after a few hours or so (or after closing them down) I find that ONLY the .exe files for these programs has been deleted (including the shorcuts). My firewall has been turned off when installing and also off when running etc. I also had Bullguard Antivirus installed (a year or two ago) and that has run out so I am not sure if I have any antivirus installed. I really need your help as it is hindering my work. Thanks all! If you need any extra info let me know!

Not having an antivirus installed and fully updated can be a problem. I have seen where my antivirus would delete .exe files when it determined they were infected but usually I'd get a warning first. Most times the source I downloaded from became the suspect, not all download sites should be trusted. Haven't had much problem with downloading from the publisher's site except limits of bandwidth causing a slowness.
