    Had a game called Air Conflicts installed on my PC (Vista Home
    Premium) and it worked very happily, I got bored with the game and
    removed it.
    Have had some young relatives staying so decided to re-install it for
    them. It installed fine but when I try to use it I get "ac.exe has
    stopped working" followed by a message from Microsoft saying

    "Virus alert: Microsoft detected the Win32/PSW.Lineage.DN/
    PWS-Lineage virus on your computer

    This problem was caused by Win32/PSW.Lineage.DN/ PWS-Lineage, a known
    computer virus.

    I am running NOD32 which indicates no problem and neither does
    Malwarebytes.
    The install was from the same disc as my first install.
    Googled for an answer but only found other people with games getting
    the same message.
    Any solution greatly appreciated !!
    TIA
