Default Steam & NOD32

Are you serious...

Yet in another article, they say if you're experiencing crashes, you should scan your computer for viruses with an application such as NOD32.

I've been having a ton of problems with crashing in Team Fortress 2, and I'm trying to get to the bottom of it. I'll see if disabling NOD helps, but it would be ridiculous if I had to uninstall it.

Oh, and I also run Spy Sweeper, which they want me to fully uninstall...
