/sigh more Generic!Artemis x3

I have 3 infected folders and am unable to remove (via McAfee or through Vista), submit to WebImmune, or even zip so that I can submit them. They cannot be modified...

I don't know what to do now.

I am currently doing a full system scan with Malwarebyte's and will post log as soon as it is complete.

I am on Vista Home Basic.
McAfee found the viruses.
Below is the error log from WinZip when I tried to zip them to submit...

Malwarebyte's log

In mid-scan, I got the blue crash screen (2nd time today...), PC rebooted, and I started in safe mode with networking to try and reach this page again, but I could not access the internet. I rescanned with Malwarebyte and here is the log:

It found lots of Zango stuff, which were quarantined and deleted, but I can't find the Generic!Artemis files that McAfee reported.

They are located at:

C:\Users\RAC 4715\Downloads\Setup.exe
C:\Users\RAC 4715\Downloads\Setup(2).exe
C:\Users\RAC 4715\Downloads\Setup(3).exe

But in the McAfee detection logs, it shows that these files were found by Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware which is listed next to "Process"

I'm so confused.

I just want to get rid of those 3 files.


RE: Malwarebyte's log

Just let Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware remove them and reboot if required.

By the way, Vista SP1 is available through Windows Update.
