The game overture was downloaded successfully from steam servers on the steam client (fully updated) and then the next day when i'm not playing it at all bullguard tells me to quarantine it because it attempted to hijack another process/program to control/administrate/disguise itself as it.

????

Very likely a false positive. Steam almost never is responsible for virus distribution. If you got the game though the client and haven't added on any thrid party software you should be fine.

You can double check the steam community forums for that specific title to see if anyone else is having the same issue.
