Generic!Artemis file


I have noted that the Generic!Artemis is likely to occur more frequently at the moment, which is certainly happening on my machine.

However, I do not know how to access the file to zip and send it to McAfee.

Could you please help me with this.

RE: Generic!Artemis file


We are really sorry for the convenience. Don’t worry if you are unable to make it as zip.
Navigate to, Login if you have already registered with McAfee if not click on Register a New User on the left top and register by using a username (email) and a password

Once you are done with the registration you will be able to login to website and just click on browse and upload the infected files to McAfee Avert

Generic!Artemis problem


Thanks for your help - my problem is that I don't know where to upload the file FROM ... I cannot find it.

I have registered and logged on to the WebImmune, etc. but still am not able to upload file. Where would I find it? I know it sounds lame but I cannot find the file that shows on the warning.

Re fixing ...

By the way, I chatted on line with a technician, who told me to remove all the quarantined programmes and tracking cookies (which I duly did) and said that that would stop me from getting the notice. However, the security still keeps showing up.

RE: Re fixing ...

You have to locate the path for the file that is been detected by McAfee in the system as Generic!Artemis
You have to login to the, and then click on the submit the file in the right hand panel if you are not able to do then you have to sent an email.

Additionally, any .ZIP file created must be password-protected using the password infected. Failure to follow these guidelines will cause your submission to be rejected.
