I scanned the executable file with MalwareBytes, Kaspersky (my background AV) and Microsoft Defender. It was clean. Kaspersky however, noted that the program was potential dangerous, only because the digital signature was missing. I told Kaspersky to 'Limit' execution - only to stop dangerous actions.
I then continued to watch my process list grow up to 1000, running under my username. Then eventually, the physical memory overloaded and my computer crashed.
Several days later the same thing occurred. However this time, with a different game. I scanned it, and it was clean. I told Kapsersky to once again, limit execution with no digital signature. Within seconds of opening the game, I had over 200 processes, and the number was slowly rising. I had to hit 'End Process Tree' in order to stop my computer from crashing again.
One person suggested that it had to do with Kaspersky... As other games have worked in the past without limiting them.
I know it isn't a virus or anything malicious, perhaps a glitch? And how can I prevent it?
AV: Kaspersky Pure
Thanks in advance.
