Hey @BethMcDeath,
In order to play on our servers, you need to add the game directory to the whitelist of your antivirus.
If that doesn't help, you need to manually remove all those files from the antivirus quarantine.

If possible, I would like to understand better what that file is, that is getting marked as a virus. =)

Actually, your antivirus could move any client file to its quarantine
It can be either elementclient.exe or any library file with a .dll extension
Therefore, I recommend adding the entire game client folder to the whitelist of your antivirus.
Some antiviruses often detect "viruses" in Perfect World clients.
So you have nothing to worry about.

Actually I meant to ask, since the antivirus identified various files as all being infected with the same file Gen:Variant.Zusy.372540, I wanted to ask if that is part of the software itself.

When I google that name, I find results like these: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...ant-zusy/351f45c3-0dd3-443f-9687-8d6ba88f0b83

"This Gen.variant.zusy is also known as Trojan:win32/Waprox and connects to certain servers to receive commands from remote attacker.

This site will give info on it and apparantely MSE AND MSS detect and remove it. microsoft.com/security/portal/threat/encyclopedia/entry.aspx?name=Trojan%2fWaprox "

I would like to play on the External PW servers, but if the game files are infected with a Trojan it's not worth it to me to get owned. (Maybe an old Trojan survived in the archives of the game file? All the results about it are from a few years ago)
