Having an issue with the patcher and playing the game

Okay, I have been having this issue for a couple weeks, and I have not been able to play because of it. I go to play the game, doesn’t matter if I click on steam or from file folders or desktop, and the patcher goes fine until I try to press the play button. It gives me this strange notification that I have an optional setting and I need to confirm the running of the game. I press cancel and it shuts down the program and if I press OK the patcher launches again but when it finishes the whole thing freezes and I have to close the program manually. I have no idea what is going on and once I figure out how to screenshot the notification I will put it up. Can anyone help? I just want to play.
