So, i have been playing a few different thing today, both VR and non VR. Then i booted up rec room to check out the new rec royale thing, and mid load the game exited. Not only that, but the oculus client disappeared as well. Clicking my normal shortcut indicated that windows could no longer find it. Checking start menu shortcuts and its original location also indicated that the client executable was no longer there either.
Then i checked my bitdefender free version, saw several oculus/oculus game related files being quarantined in it. Removed those from quarantine (restoring the files) and added exceptions to them in the process. The oculusclient.exe was still nowhere to be seen though.
As i am writing this, i have downloaded oculus setup again and is currently doing a repair on my installation (it is in the process of downloading 5 gb).
This is just a heads up. I still don't know if the cause is bitdefender free (since the client wasn't among the things listed in the quarantine list) or something else. Regardless of which it is, it is a rather serious issue, hence this thread.
