Just had this with the java.byteverify trojan. Ad-aware imports files into the cache to analyze them. it looks at zip files too. so every time you run ad-aware it brings the virus file out to look at it, and your av flags it up. you delete it from the cache, and next time you run ad-aware it turns up again. the problem is listed on the lavasoft forums here: click here
I ran the trend micro housecall on line scanner, which found 12 infected files in zip form in the sun java files. click here
mjojo: one file was on my desktop in a zipped file and the other was on another of my installed drives. I think it was some kind of game exe file that I have had for quite a while. The scan did not report them as things within the registry.
huggyg71, yes I agree with you on that.. strange that AVG did not pick these up. As to the names of the virii, I'm afraid I cannot recall :-( Sorry. That would have been useful. Actually thinking about is, I wonder if they are in the "Recycle bin".. worth a check when I get home tonight.
