    As the title says, Kaspersky detects:

    C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Programs\unity-accelerator-app\extrafiles\unity-accelerator.exe as a trojan.

    Has this happened with someone else?

    It happened to me also after building my project and tried to test it, what I noticed is that Kaspersky Antivirus only detecting the trojan if I only imported (GKC 3.03-2 Action Systems Animations Package.unitypackage) into the project...So any other project not included (GKC 3.03-2 Action Systems Animations Package.unitypackage) the antivirus will not detect any trojan and will not delete the project's build... If I build any scene and/or any project with just pure Game Kit Controller without (GKC 3.03-2 Action Systems Animations Package.unitypackage) again no issue and the antivirus will not interfere or give warning at all.. Checkout the attached image..

    Note: ( I scanned all the files by the antivirus and checked every file but I didn't see any suspected file )

    Anyway I'm still trying ti find out why it happened... have a nice day!

    EDIT.....
    After many tests and researches I discovered that the issue is in the save system in GKC, not in the Mixamo (Animation package) - (GKC 3.03-2 Action Systems Animations Package.unitypackage)..

    In short, When GKC asset started to save the gameplay, inside the folder eg, (C:\Users\me\AppData\LocalLow\DefaultCompany\GKC2082022P00\Save) The antivirus immediately will terminate the game process and delete the .exe file..

    By the way, if I build (Home Menu scene, Armor Cloth System Scene & Loading Screen Scene) there's no problem with the antivirus program, but with any other GKC Scene the antivirus will interfere and delete the .exe build file.

    In fact I don't understand why but I'm still trying to find a way out with exact reason as much as I can.

    UPDATE....
    FINALLY THE ISSUE SOLVED, THANKS GOD.
    Before building the project, Go to the main menu in Unity -> Game Kit Controller-> and click on (Delete Save Files). That's it.
    Check the attached image bellow.
