No I think we need to embrace this. Everybody take a side and then we have a ranking system based on games released or reviews written etc. 2018 is a fight to the death!! You're just not thinking outside the box Po, this will SAVE THE FORUM. ]:)

The exe-files disappearing could(?) indicate that your antivirus-software doesn't like ADRIFT 5. Unfortunately quite a lot of antivirus-software incorrectly think that ADRIFT 5 is a virus. Perhaps you could try to uninstall your antivirus-program temporarily to see if that fixes the problem. If it does, consider choosing another antivirus-software.

Amazingly I just had that happen to me this morning, the Anti-virus quarantine the exe.

Christmas ended like five days ago, and my neighbors are pretty far away and all rednecks anyway.

Ok, I'll try that. I already have the 2 Antivirus that came installed on my computer disabled already XD They got annoying after a while saying my trial was over... and they still kept doing things...

I ended up finding an extra Antivirus that wasn't disabled, I was able to disable it and then Adrift 5 started up, thank you everyone!

If you are using Win 10, then you "should" be able to remove/uninstall the 2 trial AVs. Providing you don't visit websites of a dubious nature, then Windows Defender is quite capable and doesn't interfere with other software. (At least in my experience.)

I was able to disable Malwarebytes and Windows Defender, (I currently use Malwarebytes) it was that McAfee was still running while disabled, idk how or why, but I uninstalled McAfee and then Adrift 5 started working XD

These occurrences of anti-virus software identifying ADRIFT files as viruses are know as "false positives". If you visit the website for the AV software you have, you can report the false positive files - I had to upload an example - and they will eventually stop deleting the files. I did this at work where the AV software is Symantec and now any ADRIFT files are ignored by the AV software.

HTH

P.S. Happy New Year everyone!!!
