I assume you have it working now as you have posted gameplay comments?

You might need to run the installer as administrator? It should do this automatically, but it might not be working as it should.

If it still doesn't work then let us know and we will see how to get you going.

Cheers

My PC is an idiot, the game wasn't running because AVG saw the file Uninstaller.exe how a malware(virus)
Now the game is running but...
Uninstaller.exe is a virus?
Is there a possibility of a PC damage?

It's almost certainly a false positive. AVs will often look at anything which is (e.g.) being written to the Windows folder as a virus.

Glad you are up and running.
