    Stinger found Artemis file infected

      I have also been having issues with 'the voice', 'you have won screens', and redirection of my google searches.  As per Mcafee Home User Instructions, in safe mode,  I ran a scan on my hd.  It came up clean. I then downloaded the Stinger tool from the link provided.  There was only one choice to download, not the several described in the instructions.  I ran it with very high (paranoid) level, and it found this trojan:

      C:\Users\Charlene\Desktop\Dell Comp\Dell HD\Program Files (x86)\Uniblue\DriverScanner\bspatch.exe

           Found the Artemis!2E7543A4DEEC trojan !!!

        Number of clean files: 248082

        Number of Trojans: 1

       

      I was unable to load it up to McAfee because the links provided in step 3 returned a 'Artilce not found' message.

       

      I would REALLY like to get complete control of my laptop back.  Any suggestions?
