3 viruses dected

I have 3 viruses dected on my last full PC scan which was moments ago.

Viruses and Trojans Quarentined: Artemis!7F706C6E8821 <- This code cannot be found on the Mcafee website. [This code was given when the scan was finished, this is the code for the trojan, virus I have?]

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Moved to Malware Discussion > Artemis

Artemis is not the name of an infection, it;s the name given to a detection of something unknown and ther eis a chance that it could be a false detection.

You might be able to determine what it was by looking in the quarantine section of SecurityCenter/

Open SecurityCenter and click Navigation

Scroll down to Quarantined and Trusted Items and open each section.

It should be there with a path to wherever it came from.  That might give you an idea what it is.

To deal with Artemis that is a false detection read here:  https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016

Otherwise reinstate whatever is there and then run GetSusp and it will automatically submit the files to the labs but make sure you first enter your email in Preferences so they can get back to you eventually.

Not if you have McAfee installed.  It controls everything.  This isn't anything to do with your firewall anyway.    Open McAfee and look for those things as I suggested,.

Thanks.

Downloaded GetSusp and it found 11 suspicious and 1 Unknown.

Sent the logs to McAfee.

I hope this is nothing serious, my PC is kinda new.

Be careful what you download and where you download from.   Don't file share if at all possible.   Always keep Windows up to date including any parts you may not use (Internet Explorer for instance if you use another browser).  Read the last link in my signature below for some extra tools and suggestions.

Hello Ashley, this does look like a malicious file, but I'll have it reviewed more closely, and reply back.
