Question update computer > VCDS flagged as having Trojan. How to still use?

Ran the most recent Windows 10 update today and on reboot it showed that VCDS 18.1 was quarantined, and named Trojan:Win32/Fuery.B!cl

Like many of ya, I bought my Vagcom cable off Craigslist for $20, because i can't afford a new, professional one... installed the software the guy included, but that was 6 months ago with no issus/viruses detected since. He just said to never run the update on the software, keep it 18.1.

So now I have a car that needs a tune up and no software to help do that.

Un-quarantine it, then re-quarantine? Seems sketchy and like inviting a hack.
Try and find software from a different release and risk it not being compatible with my cable?

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Part of the problem of buying this kind of hacked stuff. I would throw it away and use the VCDS locator list to find someone near me with a genuine cable to use. Or buy a real one. Not many of us either. People are constantly warned about this approach. If I were you I would be worried about anything you had done in the last six months since you got the "tool" as it potentially compromised anything you connected to or did on your computer. I would be changing passwords and bank accounts. They may have your information and just haven't used it yet.

China now has access to that computer.

We have kits starting at $199, look for the HEX-V2.

What should you do first with VCDS? AUTOSCAN!

I think they let you download VCDS Lite for free. Maybe find an authentic KII-USB or buy that HEX-V2.
For your PC I might suggest you use Windows Defender (or whatever they call it now) Off-line, if you can get Windows 10 to do that.

I have this china cable http://a.co/hJvhxXW , but I use VCDS Lite ($99) with it, at least I know that software isn't gonna eat my computer. If your cable is the same it should work. It's ok, but the connection speed sucks. I actually just scored a used key-usb for $120, which is fine for me as I only own ALHs.

Avast is a great anti-virus and it is also free. You may want to check out Spy-Bot and CCleaner to get the the trash off of your hard drive. Spy-Bot and CCleaner are also free forever just like Avast is. Good luck!

If you can’t find anyone near you with a cable like I couldn’t, you can rent one from AARodriguez for cheap..$9 shipping and $5 a day/$25 a week. Nice about that is it’s a genuine a Rosstech cable with hex+ canbus

Compared to the cost of one visit to a dealer for anything, the VCDS cable is a bargain.

I don't regret for a second paying $349 for the Hex-Can cable I got back in 2004 (or was it 2005?). That was a lot of money back then, especially with the communist Canadian dollar at the time. I think it was something like $1.65 Canadian for one actual dollar.

Still, it was well worth it. You couldn't give me my money back for it.
