Mcafee False Positive on Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum?

  Hi, every time I start RCT3 platinum, McAfee picks up Artemis![bunch of letters and numbers]. It picks it up on the Autorun file on the CD. I am absolutely positive it is not a virus attaching itself to the CD because My computer is absolutely clean from viruses because I run Full scans every 2-3 days. And its a Brand new CD from the store so its obviously a false-positive. It didn't happen during Installation however, just whenever I play the game; The game still runs fine though. This gets very annoying, how can I stop it besides turning McAfee off? Additional Info-- McAfee Program: Total Protection | Windows Version: Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2) | Affected Programs: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum | Exact Location of The False Positive: E:/Autorun.exe | Type of Virus: Artemis![numbers and letters]

I'm not sure if McAfee is mistaking it for a Real virus or if its just a False positive of what might be a virus, but here it is:

Looks like the programs (DAT files) are not up to date, can you check for updates and then observe the status!
