mciptshm.dll

Jump to solution

Hi,

McAfee has found a trojan (Artemis!.....etc) in one of its own files (MCIPTSHM.DLL). Now McAfee still works (after putting the file in quarantine), and searching for the file on internet didn't reveal any suspected problems. Anybody else has a similar experience with this file? (Virusscan 15.0.300 datfile 6696). What properties should this file (size, date, etc) have?

I see the file back in the directory again and virusscan works as expected. So this looks solved, thanks

Hi,

I'm having the same issue. First I got a popup message from Mcafee AntiVirus that my system is at risk then did a FULL scan of my PC and found Artemis!226F985A2463(Trojan) but it cannot be removed. What's happening?

Please help.

Thanks.

Are you sure its the very same file?-- the detection name is generic(system generated algorithm) do not go by that.... just right click McAfee icon on taskbar and update..

Once done. restart your computer.. and rescan the PC.. get the exact file name and path along with the detection name in the next post.
