This can be removed by opening the control panel going into other control panel options on the side and selecting java and deleting temp files this should get rid of it.

switched off system restore ran new avg scan no viruses found,but both viruses now read inside archive cannot be healed,is the avg scan just ignoring them cause they cant be healed

They are usually in the temp java files and i think are somewhat misleading there is a link on the sun java site,that is if you have sun java.

Dump the contents of your Sun Java cache -
Start --> settings --> control panel --> Java plug-in --> cache --> clear

usually clears it.

The problem is that the virus is inside an Archive file like a ZIP or RAR file. For some reason AV software can't open these files and remove the virus.

Just look at where the file is, find it with explorer and carefully delete the file.
