Since mine isn't an artimis what sould I put, Something like "False RDN/Generic.hra!bz"?
Also what is the artimis detection name?
Thanks for the speedy reply.
That particular section only refers to Artemis detections, this isn't one.
It is not unusual for "Gamers" to experience such detections, by McAfee and other Anti-Virus applications. Primarily due to the (Unpacker) has changed. Follow Ex_Brits suggestion to submit to McAee Labs. Therfore quite possibly a Technician/Engineer from McAfee Labs will analyze and determine.
Steam/Minecraft/Foxhud frequently are detected as such. See the Following Article: Supreme Commander Virus Downloads with install :: Help and Tips
You may even want to Download and run Malwarebytes (Free) for a (Second Opinion) - DO NOT accept the (Free) Trial offers/or activate during the Download process, to keep it (Free). This Superb Tool and others can be obtained from the following Link:

It says "If something is identified, maybe wrongly as "Artemis" then McAfee already knows about it. Merely send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Artemis detection name and the words "False Artemis!++++++++++++" (where ++++++++++++ is the 12-digit code given to it) as the subject line. (Minus the ""). Also post in the Artemis forum with the Artemis number as the header and put an explanation in the body of the post. That gives you a double chance at getting it dealt with quickly."
To me that suggests that this is a generic responce where Artemis could be replaced with another type of virus. I'm trying to use the Getsusp instead but the program won't connect to the internet telling me to "check your connection" when I am already online.
Kind of stuck for ideas now so any help is appreciated.
Artemis is the name the software gives to detections that are unknown to the database. That article also tells you how to retrieve the quarantined file and submit it to the labs.
Alternatively you can run GetSusp and it will submit it for you.
There's a recent discussion on the Steam forums about this game being detected by McAfee. Same detection name, and a link to a VirusTotal scan. Is this the same download?
If this isn't yours I would suggest uploading your exe to VirusTotal for comparison with the one that's already been checked.
Ok I think that I submitted it to the virus research but I couldnt send the file itself as my email wouldn't let me upload it, I had to send it as a zip file.
I wrote "The attached file SupremeCommander.exe was quarantined by McAfee but it is the exectuable file for a computer game downloaded through the client Steam which will not work without it. It is certainly not a virus as Steam is a widly used gaming client and I doubt they would be handing out viruses like that."
Is that enough? Am I just playing the waiting game now or is there wanything else I can do?
GetSusp doesn't work for me for some reason.
If you sent a zipped file to the labs it has to be password-protected (i.e. encrypted) using the password infected - if you didn't do that they wont respond.
