I am currently having the same issue. My PC found the virus a couple days after having been installed. When I tried to run the game, I got an error, then got a notice that it was detected by Windows Virus Protection

 

Threat detected: Trojan:Win32/Fuery.C!cl

Alert level: Severe

Date: 10/9/2019 6:53 PM

Category: Trojan

Details: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

I got the same virus.

I was wondering why Gentools started to try to automatically download an update for Gentools, which it had never done in the past.

Has anyone tried contacting the Admin about this.

Hey guys,

 

After looking around the forums I saw in the gentool F.A.Q. it is common for antivirus to detect the d3d8.dll file as a virus, but it is a false positive. Set the antivirus to ignore it and you can continue with install and normal function.

 

Worked for me when I just tried it.

So its nothing harmful? Just ignore it and continue as usual? I played for about 6 month, and this issue start happening for me last days. Still cant get oline. Guess i have to install it all over again.

Microsoft Security program listed it as the Trojan:Win32/Fuery.C!cl, but not sure if that means anything, as MS Security might just be overly cautious. 

I'll reinstall Gentools and see what happens.

But one has to wonder why MS Virus Security only recently picked up on this, as I'm assuming this file has been on my computer for the past few years?
