    Trojan cannot be removed

      I ran a full scan on 6/16/09 and it found 3 trojans. Two were quarantined. For Artemis!BB99D3D4E2C8 (trojan), McAfee said that it cannot be removed. I ran the scan because everyone in my contact list received a message with the subject of "Hi". The content of the message was:

      The trojan also turned on my vacation reply option and sent a message to any of my contacts who tried to contact me. I don't understand why McAfee cannot remove this trojan. It's still on my system and continues to send email to my contacts on a daily basis. Very annoying and frustrating.
