This just in from reader WP…
Hey Woody, been a reader of your site for a long time.
I just wanted to send this tip in that many gamers have recently had with avast! and Valve’s Steam platform. Recently, the makers of avast! botched a definition update within the past few days which caused SteamService.exe to be detected as malware, when it isn’t. With the executable not being able to open, Steam itself will not open.
The fix is to reinstall Steam or force a definition update with avast! instead (or move it out of the chest).
Keep up the good work!
