I do not understand tech talk pertaining to system files, data, etc. I am by no means stupid and can understand anything once it is explained to me I just don't understand tech terminology. When I run McAfee Virus Scan it says threat detected . It says exactly as follows: " Threat Detected: Artemis!5221AD44B0A6 (Trojan) . Location: C:\MarkandStephanie|Videos|New folder.zip. " There is also a second one with the same info only it is called New Folder (2).zip. How do I get rid of these?
Artemis is the generic name the software gives to anything unknown and, in its opinion, suspicious, so it submits the information to the labs for further analysis.
You must have imported some video material at some stage the software doesn't like.
Do you recall what it could be?
Meanwhile there are some tools and hints in the last link below.

okay at least I know what it is now. It is a video that my daughter took of the kids . Must have been something wrong with the flash card. Do I just rename it and it will quit coming up as a Trojan or what because it won't let me delete it. Thank you
Well if you want an answer as to whether or not it's an infected file, you should submit it, 'how to' is outlined in the link I gave.
I'm signing off now, so good luck.
Renaming will still allow it to be detected you need to submit the file as Peter suggested. Usually it takes 3-4 days to get an answer once you submit it.
