Some Baseball Mogul users are still having problems with McAfee deleting the game after it's been installed. It's been more than 2 years and McAfee still hasn't fixed the known bug in their software.
If you need proof that Baseball Mogul is safe, you can right click on BB-2021.exe and choose 'Scan' (with the red McAfee icon) and McAfee will tell you the program has no viruses. However, whenever you run Baseball Mogul, McAfee deletes it. After fighting with them since 2018, McAfee is still unwilling to fix this bug. So, here are some steps to workaround the problem:
To replace the one file that McAfee keeps deleting, you can get it here (to avoid reinstalling the entire game):
(or http://files.sportsmogul.com/BB-2020.exe for Baseball Mogul 2020)
Copy this file to c:/Sports Mogul/Baseball Mogul 21/ (or wherever you installed the game).
Then you'll have to exclude BB-2021.exe from McAfee's Real-Time Scanning:
1. Run the McAfee program.
2. Click Settings (the circular gear cog) at the top right.
3. Click Real-Time Scanning.
4. Click Excluded Files.
5. Click Add File.
6. Navigate to the location of BB-2021.exe (e.g. C:\Sports Mogul\Baseball Mogul 21)
7. Click 'BB21.exe' and click the 'Open' button.
8. Close McAfee and run Baseball Mogul 2021.
I hope this finally resolves your problem. If not, you probably have a few choices:
1) Go back into McAfee Real-Time Scanning and turn off the entire feature.
2) Contact McAfee product support for help.
3) Uninstall McAfee.
As I said above — and I cannot stress this strongly enough as a small business owner who has been developing virus-free software for more than 20 years — this is McAfee's problem, not ours. Other developers are frustrated by the same bug. We could all use your help in contacting McAfee and stressing to them that this bug is a serious headache for their customers (some of whom have just uninstalled McAfee once they realized that it was constantly deleting a program that McAfee itself verified was virus-free).
