    Avast blocking Tetris Game in Windows 8.1 Update 1

    Hi All

    Tried to modern game Tetris in Windows 8.1 on my Desktop, keeps getting blocked as suspicious file, why I even reinstalled Avast I don't know really at all, System I know was a little slower with Windows Defender activated for some reason, but maybe cause I never completed full scan with Windows Defender, who knows. But I can't even play my Modern games with Avast 9.0.2018 in

    Submitted as False positive, no response from Avast as yet

    Maybe I made a bad choice switching to Avast after all, even after removing the file from Avast chest, the game still won't run

    Problem solved with VPS Update!!
