Confused about Artemis I'm collecting

I have the Dell Mini which does not update McAfee well. Normaly I have to un-install / re-install. Windows XP OS
I now found Artemis the Trojan. McAfee quarantined Artemis.
I am unable to send remove or do any thing else with the Quarantined file.
I tried removing it by using instructions I found on McAfee Forum. Which did not work.
I Downloaded SuperAntiSpyware and removed everthing it said needed to be removed.(AntiSpyware removed everthing but Artemis and Caused System error.)
I re-scanned(long scan)McAfee said no threat found...SuperAntiSpyware said no more threats.
I do still see it listed in the Quarantined box on McAfee.
Is it just this crummie little Dell Mini...or should I worry still?
I can not send it to McAfee...or do anything else with it???
I was told not to worry Artemis. But now each time I time another Artemis shows up in Quarantine I have collected 2 now...

Confused...any ideas? Thanks

RE: Confused about Artemis I'm collecting

I did what was suggested in the thread you sent me.(Before as stated in my last before) I still can not send-delete or restore. I can not remove Artemis from my computer.
I used the suggested spyware and have had computer problems ever since.
I began getting system error messages.
I chated with McAfee and was told me not to worry about Artemis.
My Windows security keeps getting turned off now.
I have a mini a mini has no hard drive no disks for repair.
I would really like to rid my computer of Artemis. I had no problems until I met ArtemisSmiley Sad
