I wonder can it cause any problems if i lose the reportbugs.exe in the game files?
My antivirus detected it as a troyan and deleted it.

    I 'think' that just gets rid of the reporting bugs program that sometimes pops up when the game crashes. Might be okay without it.

    If your anti-virus is reporting the bug report.exe as a trojan, You have bigger issues. Awhile back I kept getting trojan warnings every other day from a game I purchased and downloaded through Steam. I knew the game was legit but I deleted the files anyways. To make a long story short, I found out I had a program on my computer that was slowly infecting any file that was used a lot. It's not FW game files that are really infected. It's your entire computer. You might want to check it thoroughly and depending what AV you use, you may not even find it. Malwarebytes is a great program to use.

    I personally like Microsoft Security Essentials.

    It was malwarebytes what spotted it as a trojan and the only one.

    upgrade your virus scan if possible then run a new scan to make sure.

    LOL, the system itself reads your in-game message. They can also read your in-game private messages, your guild chat. Thats on the disclaimer.
