Can you right-click on that file and identify any properties (owner, size, creator, etc.)?
Does either "Artimis" or "cdt" mean anything to you regarding any applications, files, or data bases you use?

A lot of malware will create random names for their executable files.

If the file name is completely unknown to you, try re-naming it to something like xyz.exe

"Artemis" is the name of a fairly old variant of malware - so that looks kind of suspicious.

I suggest downloading and running the McAfee "Stinger" application (safe for Servers)
http://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/free-tools/how-to-use-stinger.aspx

It is a fully safe application - used millions of times - and might be a simple fix.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Thanks Si.

frankbustos,
"legalsrl" is the duty McAfee guy around here, but it is late at night in his part of the world.
He can post more tomorrow.

The only reference I could find to "cdt2011.exe" relates to some kind of Dental software. You don't work in a Dental office do you?

OK, I'm back in the room.......Artemis is the new heuristics technology from McAfee that detects and removes files based on Global Threat Intelligence......what your seeing up there is a detection by Artemis to that file on your D: drive.

Firstly, what is your D drive, is it a CD, removable storage etc ?

Cheers
Simon

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
