    Help please. To remove Generic!Artemis

      A recent scan detected an unwanted programme but mcafee was unable to completely remove it .
      It's a Generic!Artemis virus and or Generic!Artemis.) trojen or both, and is currently residing in c:\windows\system32\ma\MTK63G.exe. It does not appear to affecting my computer but I have just renewed my mcafee for 2 years and I don't want it there. Any help would be appreciated

          Send the file(s) to the lab.

          Then do this:

          Download Malwarebytes ' Anti-Malware from Here or Here Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

          * Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
          * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
          * Once the program has loaded, select Perform Full Scan, then click Scan.
          * The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
          * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
          * Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
          * When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart (see Extra Note below).
          * The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
          * Copy & paste the entire report into your next reply.

          Extra Note:
          If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

                  Has this virus been dealt with appropriately so I won't have to worry about it?   Thanks.

                    This is a very old thread. I doubt whether after three years you will get a reply, and you're asking similar vague questions elsewhere, so I'm locking this thread.
