Hi all,

Im new here and this is my first post. I know very little about PC's an have just encounted a problem. I clicked on a facebook link and it took me to another page (on you tube I think). I closed it when Mcafee popped up and said it automatically removed a Trojan Virus. I ran Mcafee scan and it detected files infected with something called Artemis Trojan and removed it. I ran a scan then with Malawarebytes Anti-Malware that came up with nothing. I re-ran a scan again with Mcafee that again came up with nothing. I'm sure that something isnt right as the scans ran very very slowly. Mozilla seems to be running slowly also. I have checked the systems guard log in mcAfee as well and there appears to be 3 files that are opening on startup that look suspect.

I have no idea how to send you logs and information that you may need to assess but if you can be patient with me, I would really really appreciate your help. I should add that Im not a compete muppet an can follow directions quite clearly! LOL!
