    You could try the excellent Avast antivirus software.

    I use NOD32 and have never had a problem with Steam. Quite odd. Must remember to bookmark that link. However, your best bet would be to try Howard's recommendation.

    thanks :) also it says AVG "antivirus" do you think AVG anti-spyware 7.5 will clash with the games aswell?

    Only way to tell, is to try running the games with AVG Antispyware enabled and see what happens.

    If it does, then just uninstall it.
