I thought I would replay Syberia 1 and 2 before the new Syberia 3 comes out. I played Syberia 1 with no problems but when I tried to install Syberia 2 on my current computer, McAfee(Security) quarantines the exe file and says it contains the "Artemis" virus.Has anyone else had this problem?

PS I think I have posted this in the wrong forum but don't know how to move it...

Where did you get the game?
If you have the disc version or bought it from a legitimate download site, it's a false positive and the file should be fine.

Here's someone else with the same problem

I have the disk version and when I purchased it, years ago, it worked just fine.

After looking at the link I guess I'll just have to wait for McAfee to decided its not a virus...

First off I am not a McAfee fan and I would not wait until McAfee decides that your game is Ok or not, as Jenny100 pointed out it is a False Positive, if it was me, I would simply make sure to disconnect myself from the Internet, then stop McAfee services, then install the game, when all is good, re-start the McAfee services and re-connect myself to the Internet.

There many people who are disappointed with McAfee and have switched to another Security system, depending on your Budget, you can either buy another reputable A/V or get a Free one and there are good Free ones out there.
Just my 2 cents worth.

I am not only not a fan of McAee, I get rid of it on every new computer I set up. You may be able to go in to McAfee and tell it to leave this file alone, but I'm not sure how it works.


Still at home, snuggled in my computer corner with my little heater and secretly loving not having to go anywhere!

I, too remove McAfee and Norton first thing on a new PC. I feel that they are both are just about as bad as malware themselves. And they both give *far* too many false positives. Keep the game and replace the McAfee.
