    False Artemis!504D52ACD5A7

      The link below is a client for Multiplayer Quake 2 (Quake 2 version 3.20) that uses a .dll called anticheat.dll to keep people from cheating during multiplayer matches.  McAfee keeps flagging anticheat.dll, but it's not a virus. Anticheat.dll provides security on Quake 2 servers that use it.

       

      http://old.r1ch.net/stuff/r1q2/download/r1q2.zip  <--- anticheat.dll is within this zip file, along with the r1q2 client executable.

       

      All of the files in that zip, including anticheat.dll, go into the default Quake 2 directory. (for example: c:\quake 2\)

       

      Anticheat.dll was originally created and is found at this site:  http://antiche.at/ 

       

      ----

       

      Quake 2 Lithium Mod servers also use anticheat.dll.  The site mentions this particular dll in its quick setup page.

       

      http://quake2lithium.com/quick-start-guide

       

      In fact, it even says:

       

      "IMPORTANT:  Some Antivirus apps may detect ANTICHEAT.DLL as a Trojan or malware, this is FALSE.  Instruct your Antivirus to ignore or whitelist this DLL."

       

      ----

       

      So, with all this in mind, please remove anticheat.dll from your virus list.  It is not a virus.
