Quarantined Threat - how to remove??

Hi there!

I have pop-up box constantly appearing on my desktop -  "We quarantined a threat". I have been onto the McAfee window, clicked onto 'Navigation' and brought up the list of Quarantined Threats. There is no delete button! How do I delete?? They are Trojan threats that keep appearing. I have attached a screen shot of where I am up to. The pop-ups are driving me bonkers! And if it is a Trojan, I need to get rid! So any help would be most appreciated.

Thank you!!

Re: Quarantined Threat - how to remove??

Have you tried to (click ) on one of the Quarantined Threats buttons to expand,so you can select delete?

You can also run the following tools listed in this removal guide Uninstall Advanced PC Care (Removal Guide)

Even though it is listed as a Artemis!, it is actually a (PUP) and a Registry Cleaner which you do not want to keep.
