    Possible False Positive - Artemis!13B8586DAA31



      Yesterday, I opted to restore my HP Pavilion dv9623cl Notebook PC to factory settings due a very possible trojan virus threat.  My bank had notified me of a possible security breach with my credit card and thus felt it had to be due to the tojan virus. 


      After restoring the laptop, I installed install McAfee and it did the following:




      Item:  Wheel Of Fortune - Setup.Exe

      Threat Detected:  Artemis!F554C81A900D (Trojan)





      Quarantined and Potentially Unwanted Programs:


      Threat Name:  Artemis!13B8586DAA31

      Affected Items:  5




      Registry Key

      Undefined, undefined, undefined, undefined


      I did try to send the samples of items detected, but the software prompted me in error due to the files being too large to send.


      Please help me in trying to remove the threats detected and in cleaning my laptop.


      NOTE:  If I had restored my laptop to factory settings, why would I find viruses in the HP Games since I used CDs to restore it?  Puzzled.  :\
