Game and client both close, then client deletes itself when attempting to play

Hi there, sorry to bother you, but I wonder if anyone can give me any advice?

Starting today, when i attempt to join a game, or launch one that I'm hosting, the game closes, the client closes, and then Downlord's client is deleted from it's folder. My shortcuts then no longer link to anything.

This does not make any sense to me.

I have reinstalled and launched the client and game several times since this started, but every time - after a few seconds the same thing happens. I have also watched the client disappear from its folder in my Program files.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated! I play every day!

Must be your anti-virus


Thanks! It was the default antivirus program that came with this PC! I uninstalled it and replaced it, and now I can play again 🙂

I don't know why it started doing that today, but thank you for the suggestion. Problem solved.

Greta. I generelly recommend unintsalling any Third-Party Anti-Virus software and just letting Windows Defender (built into Windows) do its job : )
