Cannot Play DayZ Because Virus:

Hello everyone, I simply cannot play DayZ because a virus has infected my dnsapi.dll (located in System32). I would love to play this game yet i cannot because BattleEye keeps detecting something wrong with it, it gives an error in little to no detail but i know this is the case because my antivirus told me there was an issue.

Q: "Why don't you delete it then."

A: "I cannot because the PC depends on dnsapi.dll to have internet, (which cannot be replaced without fresh install of windows. sfc /scannow does not work for me either).

I suggest you (the Dev's of DayZ) to please address this issue because BattleEye detects an issue with the file in question, (I don't even understand why this checks a dll that isn't in the directory of DayZ, especially if it is a dependency for windows mostly, or isn't injected).

Thanks for reading, hope to hear from somebody about this issue as i'd love to have the game I payed for, at least... playable?!

Re-format your whole hard drive? You get faster PC and you can play DayZ once again. Win-win.

Good luck with a box store computer if that's the case, lol.

You're right though I don't use any protection beyond windows firewall and just re-organise, store pics externaly, etc. and wipe my machine every year or so, it helps with performance and you don't end up screwed if your HD has a mechanical failure.

      I’ve been having an error on the ‘‘DayZ Standalone‘‘ game for several months now. I can start the game and also join a server, but I get an error message after playing for about 2-5 minutes, which says: DayZ : DayZ.exe - Application Error : The instruction 0x0000000000749D25 referred to working storage 0x000000000605C074. The procedure ‘‘read‘‘ couldn’t be carried out in the working storage.
      However, the game continues to run but I can’t play anymore, although I can hear sound. If don’t join a server, the game could run forever.
        The error comes only in Dayz Standalone up.
        The error comes up since the version 0.58.
        The error comes up on my pc and also on my laptop.
      I went trough the procedure of:
      1. Checking the game on ‘‘Steam‘‘ for Errors.
      2. Unstalling several times, downloading and installing it again.
      3. NVIDIA graphics drivers completely uninstalled and reinstalled .
      4. Starting ‘‘Memtest‘‘.
      5. I bought also new memory storage -> I have now 16 GB RAM
      I would appreciate your help as I don’t know what else I can do. I look forward to getting useful and helpful information.
      Ich bekomme eine Fehlermeldung im Spiel „DayZ Standalone“ seit mehreren Monaten. Ich kann das Spiel starten und auch einen Server beitreten , aber ich erhalte eine Fehlermeldung nach etwa 2-5 Minuten nach dem Spiel , welche lautet: DayZ : DayZ.exe - Anwendungsfehler: Die Anweisung 0x0000000000749D25 verwies auf Arbeitsspeicher bei 0x000000000605C074. Der Vorgang „read“ konnte nicht im Arbeitsspeicher durchgeführt werden.
      Dieser Fehler tritt nur bei Dayz Standalone auf.
      Also alles Bohemia Interactive Produkte. Dieser Fehler tritt seit dem Update 0.59 auf.
      Und dies ebenfalls auch auf meinem Laptop.
      Allerdings läuft das Spiel weiter, aber ich kann nicht mehr spielen, obwohl ich Sounds hören kann. Wenn ich keinem Server beitrete, könnte das Spiel für immer laufen.
      Folgendes habe ich probiert:
      1. Das Spiel auf „Steam“ auf Fehler überprüfen und auch reparieren lassen.
      2. Deinstalliert mehrmals und das Spiel mehrmals heruntergeladen und es neu installiert.
      3. Nvdia-Grafiktreiber komplett deinstalliert und neu installiert.
      4. „Memtest“ über den Arbeitsspeicher rüber laufen lassen.
      5. Mir zusätzlich neuen Arbeitsspeicher gekauft.
      Ich würde Ihre Hilfe schätzen, da ich nicht weiß, was ich sonst noch tun kann. Ich freue mich darauf, nützliche, hilfreiche Informationen und Antworten zu bekommen.

      I was running around in my spawn area (Its night time and I dont have a clue where I am) when the game suddenly crashed.

      Should I submit my dxdiag and crash dumps here or email them directly to dayz support?
