Artemis! (Trojan)

I have a software preinstalled on laptop when I first go it. It's called HP MediaSmart MVP (Music, Video, Photos). The update I had was the first update. I updated the HP MediaSmart MVP to the latest version. I did a full system scan. I got at least 9 affected files. They are to do with the new HP MediaSmart MVP files. It was an Artemis!. It wasn't actually affected. HP told that the anti-virus software doesn't know the files properly. So the Artemis was a fake. I guess I have to wait for the next update and then there should be no fake issues.

There's a sticky post at the top of this section explaining Artemis and how to deal with it: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=233662

Re: RE: Artemis! (Trojan)

Thank you for the compliments but I would defer to the experts to answer you rather than myself.  I am only a volunteer moderator here.

You can spellcheck Internet explorer using the features of some toolbars such as Google Toolbar or this application: IESpell.  It's an old application but works well.

Artemis is the Active Protection component of VirusScan and if something unknown is detected VirusScan labels it as Artemis.

If  you think it is wrong (i.e. a legitimate application) then follow the guidelines I laid out HERE.

As far as the technical side of it I think the McAfee staff are better answering you on this.

Sorry but I don't have time to read such a huge amount of text thoroughly but hope that helps.

Please send us a sample for analysis to Virus_Research@McAfee.com, in a password-protected ZIP file (password - infected).

You can find detailed instructions for how to do this at <http://vil.mcafeesecurity.com/vil/submit-sample.aspx>

If you have a system where you can do a test scan, you may first wish to try our beta DailyDATs to get the latest detection available.   You can find this on our web-site at:

<http://vil.mcafeesecurity.com/vil/averttools.aspx>

Please include a description of the symptoms your system is experiencing, and any pertinent information about what AV Products you are using including company, version number (engine/dat numbers for McAfee Products) and results of the scan.

Regards

Neha
