Help!! How do I get rid of the Artemis Trogjan on Windows 7

I am at my wits ends over this stupid thing. I am not sure how I got it. I was downloading a file.

McAfee picks it up and tells me I have 2 trojans, but I can't remove it. Now this morning

it scans and tell me it has increased to 5 trojans! I searched on this site, and found nothing that works.

In fact every thing I down loads tells me it can't find McAfee registration on my laptop. Go figure that one out!

I can log on here because I registered my McAfee. I use daily and real time scans, yet...any help tool I download

from McAfee, it can't find any McAfee product on my system. I know this is here because it keep trying to send emails to

all the contacts in my yahoo list.

I contacted Online Techincal Support and it was like chasing my tail. In spite of telling them my problem, they emailed me the exact

same thing I had done! Again I ran a 2 hour scan..and nothing was found!

I am so feed up!!! I purchased McAfee for their reputation and resources. Well I sure am regretting that. Does anyone have

any suggestions on how to get the off my sytstem. I would really appreciate it. It is called Artemis!CC9BC2B60E5A.

Thanks- Totally Feedup!!
