    Most of the antivirus software today triggers false positives. Just add svencoop.exe to your ignore list.

    Out of interest what did AVG say specifically about svencoop.exe? Was there a particular signature?

    Choose an appropriate request type: False alarm on a file
    User first name: Adam
    User last name: Reece
    False detection URL: www.svencoop.com

    Details about the problem:
    Hello there,

    A couple of our players have been informing us that our game "Sven Co-op" (distributed by the Steam platform) is flagging up as "IDP.ALEXA.51" by your antivirus software.

    We have not intentionally done this (and I'd not heard of this threat until now), however could you kindly inspect the application binary attached for us?

    Original report: http://forums.svencoop.com/showthrea...d-svencoop-exe!

    Many thanks and splendid day to you,

    Adam Reece

    I've had a response already.

    Good modern antiviruses work correctly now. Although I do not use free antivirus. I recently looked avast premium review and decided to try it. Since then, I like Avast.
