I downloaded the update via the FFXIV beta. I was in the closed beta, and the whole thing did the client update fine. Took a while to download, but I got it all. I did NOT use the torrent method, only the Square Enix downloader.
When it got to the install point, it got up to 99.9% installed and it errored out. Windows Defender popped up saying it had encountered a virus.
file:C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\data\8C\D3\00\2D.DAT.tmp2
In that file, it says that it found the DOS/SSR.gen virus.
Now, I know you're supposed to disable anti-virus when you install this, but I want to make sure I'm not being paranoid. I am in no way accusing SE of putting a virus in their stuff, I just want to know if anyone else has seen this, or if I should be safe to turn anti virus off and reinstall the beta client.
