i disabled anti virus. but that doesn't explain why i can play the game fine, open and close it. but when i click settings - mod - and change the only mod i now have installed picked at random the game closes and deletes the exe. when i reload steam and down load the exe again and load it back up the setting hasn't changed and is back to default.

What antivirus did you have?
