That can only be a virus I think. Try scanning your pc with your antivirus (e.g. AVG Free), then uninstall and reinstall T2
I have been playing thief 2 for awhile now, currently I am on the "life of the party mission"
I have the GOG version. But now the game completly messing up. The button to use a lock pic (the mouse button)
no longer will work, so I cant unlock doors etc (it used to do this on occasion and I would restart the game and it would go away)
but now it will work for about 2 mins of in game play then it stops again... Everytime I read a book or load a save file the game auto saves on its own. Or when I die the game auto saves.
It keeps bringing things up on my inventory on its own as well.. I dont know what to do? My computer has been having some minor issues,
for example my mouse curser as been moving on its own and somtimes flashing from visible to invisible.. Do you think this is a virus or a thief issue? I really want to beat the game =).
If its a virus or somthing of that nature what program would you reccomend to get rid of it?
Any help is Greatly appreciated.
Really? Well I guess thats better than having somthing technical wrong with the game.
Can I do this without having to re install thief?
If not how do I avoid loosing my save files?
And thats the anti virus software you would reccomend? I dont have any right now.
You don't have an antivirus?! That's the first thing you need in a computer - not having an antivirus is like racing drunk without a seatbelt. I've been using AVG for years and it's great.
If you want to keep your saves, go into your T2 directory, in the "saves" folder and copy the files in it to another directory before uninstalling.
I use the free version of Avast Antivirus and it's also great.
Sounds more like possession than a virus, truth be told.
Have a go with Malwarebytes. Different types of programmes pick up different types of malware. But if Avast didn't pick up anything then maybe there isn't anything to get.
If you had the disc version I'd suggest copying your savegames to a stick, uninstalling, running Cleanup or similar and starting again.
Maybe contact GOG or see if anyone there is reporting similar?
Any updates to anything just before this started happening?
Or try a decent $#@** operating system in the first place.
Anyways - it's not likely a virus, virusii don't often do that. It's unlikely but possible that it's some sort of trojan or other variety of malware - but it's a pretty stupid piece of malware if it is. (when I do feel an odd need to use Windows and turn my desk into a portal to a hideous free market and can't possibly imagine being able to plug in a USB stick without first needing to install some
brandingdrivers, I use Microsoft's very own virus and malware checking softwares because that's the only one that isn't like inviting competing schools of double glazing salesmen to follow you around and have permanent access to your private life.)
It's much more likely to be a wayward peripheral (a sticky game controller or pen tablet thingy perhaps), something doing something funny via wireless or bluetooth that thinks it's a wayward peripheral or a loose connection or some such.
Alternatively, as a valued customer, you can buy my PC PLAN PRO package for only £4.99 a month which won't fix anything, but it will fill your computer with branding and advertise shit at you.

The only real virus I've had and known about over the last ten years got in from a banner ad and fucked me up royal. That avast didn't even notice makes me wonder how much of this antivirus stuff is just snake oil.
