Ok , this is the skinny.

Got something on this computer y mcafee picks it up but cannot get rid of it .

If i try to go to youtube or facebook it comes up a black screen with a maroon box that says Restricted Site !
please activate your antivirus software

i know its fake , Mcafee say its in file folder winows/system32 file name is winhelper86.dll , calls it artemis then a bunch of numbers . It has disabled my task manager and my desktop background , it turned it black , i cannot go into program files and delete the file , when i hit ctrl alt delete it says the system admin has disabled that function , plus it trys to pop up websites all the time , Ive tried everything i know to do , any ideas ?

Sounds like Malware...

Try Spybot Search and Destroy, it's a free program.

usually these get picked up by the virus throwing out a box that says "virus detected, run virus software" and when you click "okay" it actually drops the virus on your computer. let the boys know to only run the virus software on the computer and if this pops up to hit ctl >alt >del and end whatever program they're on. I learned that the hard way.
