McAfee it's time to WAKE UP

Please help me to understand the situation. I've been infected by virus http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=cd4e9e74ab65587d86d8b433ebefedb29457f56622f4ad3a8... As you can see this virus detected McAfee by signature W32/Expiro.gen.g  which was created almost a week ago (http://home.mcafee.com/VirusInfo/VirusProfile.aspx?key=430060).

But for today, this virus for unclear reasons DON,T detect by signature ! his detect only as Artemis or by EXTRA.DAT (from McAfee Lab). Respectively, McAfee products is deletes all infected files, instead of repair them !! So, what's the problem with McAfee ????

Re: McAfee it's time to WAKE UP

W32/Expiro.gen.g is a file infecting virus &  Infection starts with manual execution of the binary.  SO every time you access the infected file the chance of the file transmitting the infection to other files in the system are high. Please let us know what was the location the infected files were present to provide more information (c drive / D drive)
