I have been using combofix for a long time to clean people computer. This morning I went to download from this site and Mcafee detected it as an Artemis (trojan). Is it a problem with Mcafee V13.11 dat 5668 detecting a false postive or the file itself. any help would be useful

I think McAfee detected it as a trojan via their Artemis technology. If you downloaded Combofix from Bleeping Computer or another trusted site it's probably a false positive. You should also read this description on Combofix:

You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer.
