Avira detected a trojan from the Max Payne 3 install.

This must be a false positive right?

This is the Steam version of MP3 and it says the Object is "MaxPayne3.exe and the detection is "TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2". Literally before I went to Install MP3, I did a full scan with Avira and a quick scan with Malwarebytes and nothing came up. I'm only about 20 percent into my MP3 install when this just now came up. Do I ignore it or quarantine it?

If this is a false positive I might just switch back to Avast. This *** is annoying.

To my relief I found something that suggests it is a false positive.

Yes, it's most likely a false detection. You do update your anti virus regularly, don't you?

@OP
When you install and play the game please leave your feedback about it, how many FPS you get with what Video card and what settings.

this only happens on the illegal cracked copy of the game. i run avira and the legit max payne 3 does not give a trojan alert
tomes doesnt offer support or condone piracy...
btw gen2 xpack is a legit find by avira. as its a none standard encryption which will set avira off as its designed to...
as for swapping to a better av. there isnt a better free 1...
