After the last patch, my LoL wouldn't open right even after restarting my computer. Turns out that AVAST! had decided the launcher was a threat and quarantined it. After scanning it specifically, I restored it and the game now launches fine. This happened to one of my friends as well and I figured that others may be having the same problem.

this actually helped me out i was trying to figure out why my league stopped working, and then i checked avast and sure enough it blocked and moved the file.

Will players be unbanned for this? Happened during a ranked game when client froze, couldn't restart league. BY the time I found the reddit thread I was already banned from leaverbuster.

The file it took was C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_air_client\releases\0.0. 1.38\deploy I think. My avast version is 8.0.1483
