I just realized my Norton Antivirus is causing my game to crash. I was playing a multiplayer 3v3 game today, and it crashed. At the same time, I got a Norton Antivirus notification celebrating that it was protecting my computer from a threat and telling me how happy I should be that the antivirus was working. When I look at the scan history, I see it blocked the AOE app this way:
Just something to be aware of for alot of people who were wondering why the game keeps crashing. The virus scanners think it is a virus!
