For the last several days I have recieved warnings from McAfee scans regarding possible unwanted files on my computer. I have also recieved blocked notifications of suspicious programs requiring access to the internet. McAfee has identified a csrss.exe file in my temp folders, research indicates that this may be a double of the system file that should reside in windows32 folder (I have checked and there is a file in the windows32 folder by this name). I am unable to remove the csrss.exe file in the temp folder as I recieve the message that the file is locked, access is denied or it is in use by another program. Several scans by McAfee show Artemis!5D53CF0B4D16 as being a potentially unwanted program. McAfee states that the file should be Quarantined but having done this several times the file reappears after restarts. I also recieve constant requests from unknown files seeking access to the internet.
I am running Windows 7 with McAfee Total Protection. Below is a capture of the McAfee quarantine request.
The file is getting detected as is a Potentially Unwanted Prgram which is getting detected as Generic PUP.z!hi with McAfee Anti-spyware. please remove this file when McAfee Total protection detect this file.
if you could please confirm whether detection 'Artemis!5D53CF0B4D16' is on the file name 'csrss.exe' in temp folder?
if it is not, please send the file to firstname.lastname@example.org, in a zip format (password - infected).
Hi thanks for your response, I must confess though that I am unsure what you are asking.
Below is a copy of the McAfee warning. Does this help?
