Tried deleting the file to try and free up a bit of memory and Office programs wouldn't open. I'm keeping the program, but I'm not happy about it.

Hi, Mcaffee keeps deleting a file called artemis. I have spoken to Mcaffee and they have given me several tools saying they would source out the malware. It is still there and it will not let me delete my temp files as they are part of it. Can yo suggest or have a program to help getting rid of this artemis.

Don't stop this service or delete this file!
Annoying or not, it seems to be essential to runnning Office 365. If the file is deleted, some Office program may not run, others will cause you grief.
