microsoft security essentials is the best free anti virus/malware all those others are just chaff including AVG.

I have the same problem with AVIRA free antivirus, but also with GDATA which is not a free antivirus. In both cases, Trojan malware is detected. When you look at Readme file joined to the .dll and .exe, sYk0 warns us that it is possible to have such reaction from antivirus.
Today, I use IL2 COD under Windows 7 (a dedicated disk!), but I would prefer to have everything under Windows 8.
May be sYk0 can explain to us why we have such problems with antivirus programs?

I am also struggling to load this game in Windows 8, i tried this fix but antivirus just automatically deletes it as soon as i extract it from the folder (Norton 360) don't even have the option of telling it to ignore it :\

I would also like to know why it causes our antivirus applications to go crazy??

Also if anybody knows how to allow the file in Norton 360 i cant find the option anywhere in the settings

Well, I was really looking forward to this working but I still get the same results. I load Steam, press Play Il-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover and wait, just to find out that it still never loads. Any other ideas someone might have? like maybe a security issue that I don't know about.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

1st uninstall the virus software unless you browse porn sites all the time. Virus software is really all hype and not needed for the average user. Norton is killing the file because it thinks it is harmful aka a false positive.

Dont be scared NOT to use anti crap software. You would be better off using malware bytes software only if you need that extra feeling of PC protection.

Go to page one and download the cloder program. Disable or uninstall anti virus software. Unzip to a folder open cloder.exe, point it to the il2 cod .exe in the steam folder and it will launch under windows 8.

For all you anti virus junkies!

Definition:
False positives occur when a pattern of code in the file matches the same pattern contained in a virus signature. This can occur due to a faulty signature or it can occur after improper disinfection by the same or different antivirus scanner.

False positives can be more than just annoying. Repeated warnings that are erroneous cause the same effect as the boy who cried wolf. If too many false positives occur, when a legitimate warning is presented, users may disregard it. In other cases, a false positive can cause legitimate files to be deleted, causing the operating system or program to no longer function properly.

If your antivirus scanner says a file is clean that you believe is actually infected, here are six steps to determine if a virus alert is legitimate.

Some users claim that behavior blocking results in too many false positives. In fact, the very nature of behavioral analysis is to prevent any unauthorized modifications to key system areas. In the case of behavior blocking, the prompting for user input is a desireable occurance and should not be categorized as a false positive.

I don't mean to sound like an idiot but, I didn't understand a word you said lol
I unzipped it to my Downloads folder, Opened up Steam>Steam Apps>Common>IL 2 Cliff of Dover and placed the 2 files in there.

If that's what you mean by "point it to the il2 cod .exe in the steam folder" then I've done it.

I turned off my Firewall, Virus Protection and the Spyware Protection. I think I've pretty much done everything it takes to run the game with the new patch, but I must be missing something if it still don't run.

Have you gone here and read the 1st page of this thread?

http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthread.php?t=36078

It is not a patch and does not go into the il2 clod folder.

Download sky's fix called cloder, once the file finishes open it with either zip or rar. Make a folder on your desktop extract the cloder.zip files to your new folder.

Open up the folder you created with the extracted cloder files and double click the cloder exe. It will open a window and want you to navigate to the actual il2 cod .exe file located in steam/steam apps/common/

Once cloder has been told what exe to launch it should launch the game. There is also a read me file that sky included with his fix.
