    A relative of mine found that after a full McAfee scan they got this: Artemis!6D6BEC35C4C5 (Trojan) claiming to be from file: C:\Program Files\Mcafee\MSM/MCSMTTSK.DLL

    They called me to look at their computer & I suspected it was an f/p after downloading & running a full SAS scan, running a full Defender scan (Vista HP) & an online Bit Defender scan which all came up negative.

    I re-instated the 'trojan' file & also sent it to McAfee. After a DAT update a full scan proved the computer was clean.

    McAfee agree that it is indeed a false positive.
