Posted 03 June 2009 - 02:47 PM

When I turned my computer on yesterday I got a warning from McAfee that an infection had been detected. Shortly after this, a "trial" version of something called Antivirus System Pro came up and began "scanning" for viruses. The only way I could end this program was by ending its process in Windows Task Manager (it was called sysguard.exe), which I did, then I had McAfee run a full scan.

The scan results showed that McAfee had quarantined a bunch of stuff related to a trojan it called Artemis!B236C5DFECCC, both after the initial scan and after a post-restart scan. However, it couldn't remove a part of the infection in a file, "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\IEHELPER.DLL". Sure enough when I restarted my computer again the bogus antivirus program immediately popped up flashing several warnings about severe infections, keyloggers, real-time infiltrations, etc etc.

I ran McAfee again but got the same results. I don't know how to get rid of this thing. Any help would be HUGELY appreciated.
