Hi, Java is not as virus .. you probably need to update your Java Runtime ...

More info is needed here,As a guess you may be infected with the Javabytefly trojan/virus.

Firstly check in control panel/classic view to see if Java is installed.

Then post back.

Firstly you should try and update AVG then boot into safemode.
Tapping F8 on startup will get you into safemode,then scan with AVG.
If this does not sort your problem:

Goto Control Panel and open Java/General/View/right click the entries and delete the cache.

If this still does not work,uninstall Java from add and remove programs.Then run ccleaner click here and reboot.

Assuming you are talking about Java.ByteVerify, AVG may flag it as a virus but isn't actually a virus, it can however be used to exploit a vulnerability in the Microsoft Virtual Machine, there are further details and a link to a patch for the problem at click here

Interesting link,several of us got caught out at christmas by this.It was contained within a link posted by a forum member,however AVG dealt with this immediately and never to be seen again.

I am just assuming this gmpy's problem as the info is very limited.

Good link though,thankyou.
