VAC banned by Process Hacker

06 Nov 2015, 17:02

Hello PH guys. :P
I found this interesting bug/glitch on the newest release; it didn't happened before.

I cannot leave Process Hacker opened anymore, without getting VAC kicks every 30 minutes.
I already know it's not Windows's or external software fault, since I already checked everything. After closing Process Hacker, the VAC just stopped the random kicks.

The error message from the VAC is: "Either an issue with your computer is blocking the VAC system or you are unable to maintain a stable connection to the VAC system. You cannot play on secure servers."

What is actually causing this strange behavior?

Steam is flagging Process Hacker as hacking software, please contact them to get their heads out of their asses

I'm already aware of that, since I read the "VAC authentication error" support page like 8435739487 times.

But, again, why is the new version having this such bad behavior with Steam?
Installing an old version of Process Hacker solved the problem, the newer one just "disturbs" the VAC.

Are you sure installing the old version solved the issue?

Yes I am. Tried multiple times with the same result.
The NEW version of PH triggers the VAC, while the older ones don't.

I've emailed Valve about it. I'll update the thread if there's any new information.

My PC died the same day you sent the dev version of PH. :D
It works now, some capacitors just randomly blew up.

I'll try it tomorrow, thanks!

What's so exciting about VAC and secure servers? Why can't they fix their software instead? It can even be part of the gameplay! :D

Would they ban a game about a movie-like version of PH?

CS:GO.
Can I install development version over stable version and later update with 2.38 stable version? I'm asking just to know if I will need to do a clean installation later.

Yes :thumbup:

I hope its actually gonna work, but I suspect they're just using hash black lists (which is strange since PH has signed driver which is easier to track). So shortly after release I expect problems again. Source of my doubts.

It's happening again. Just got notified that I'm blocked VAC servers.
