Virus or False Positive -> Artemis!4BD78BEE9067?

McAfee identified "Artemis!4BD78BEE9067" as a virus. Is this indeed a virus or false positive?

Try a check to see if it really is a false detection re

If it is in a commonly used file/program there is more chance of it being false. Also post it to www.virustotal.com and see how many detections there are there.

Thank you, Peacekeeper. I am unsure if it is a commonly used program. I upgraded to Win 10 and soon (maybe a day or two) thereafter, McAfee identified the file as a virus.

Have you looked in the Quarantine folders (Navigation > Quarantined and Trusted Items > click Folders to expand) to see if it's in there as often there are more details given, such as a path to the original file, which may give you a clue as to what it was.

The link Peacekeeper gave is a good guide anyway, I wrote it !!

It was located in a temp file and didn't jump out at me as being familiar. Virustool didn't seem to like the file either. It had a detection ratio of 38/57. I quarantined it for safekeeping.

Temporary files can be discarded anyway so that's probably the end of your problem.  The quarantined item can be deleted.
