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.

    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.
