Such naming Artemis!D0E0C049ED70 is meant to say the detection names is generalized rather than providing a specific name for the infection. Those running aplhanumeric is actually hexadecimal characters of an MD5 hash of the piece of sample trigger its engine.

So technically not a virus. It maybe a freeware software (download-managers or PDF creators) bundled into your new or recent installation. They tend to be identified it as potential unwanted program (PUP). This can include browser hijacker and those of  ad-supported (users may see additional banner, search, pop-up, in-text link advertisements, etc) cross web browser plugin for Internet Explorer (BHO) and Firefox/Chrome (plugin). You may want to rescan with other s/w such as AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes anti-Malware to see if they can list out similarly and optionally removed them if desired. See an instance

Do see McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, formally is known as Artemis has option as well but rather vague
GTI will quickly notify you if the file should be blocked or quarantined through the following steps:
1.VirusScan detects a suspicious file for which there is no signature in the .DAT database on your computer.  
2.Using Global Threat Intelligence, your computer sends a fingerprint of the file to the comprehensive database at McAfee Labs.  
3.If the fingerprint is identified as known malware, an appropriate response is sent to you to block or quarantine the file.
