How do you stop mcafee from removing a program?

I have mlb2k9 and had purchased a editor from the site, when I 1st installed it everything worked fine. Then I noticed it was getting removed and it was being detected as a artemis virus. Each time I reinstall it removes it. I tried to turn off real time scanning  and disconnect my ethernet cable from modem so I was not connected to the internet. I was able to install and use the editor, but as soon as I connected it back and turned on scanning it removed it.

Now doing the appove procedure does not work anymore, and instead of it detecting artemis it says generic dv!cql or close to that error. I have called mcaffe support on chat 4 times and they have not been able to help, thry tell me to email them at the address they provide. I have done that a few times and no results.

I don't understand why I can't add this not to be scanned being it is my pc.It does not seem to be a way to add this to trusted apps or sites in internet security version I purchased last June from Mcafee web site.

Does any one have a way to do this? I have saw other postings about artemis errors and not any resoulations, I am new to this site so I have not read everything.

Any help would be appreacited. Thank you.

As far as i know you cant do that now.But I think the new version that is going to be released has that feature.You can send a sample to Mcafee to clear it.I will have to find the address for you.I would also run it through virustotal.com just to be safe.How big is the file?I think you can send it right from your Mcafee security center.There should be a button to send the file.I think it has to be under 3mb or 5mb.

Re: How do you stop mcafee from removing a program?

I just received a very strange email from the forums...please don't try that method but post your question here in the thread.

File exceptions are not permitted in the current consumer version but will be to a limited extent in the newer version currently undergoing beta testing.

The correct email for file submission is virus_research@mcafee.com - apologies.
