Java console appearance

  bamfiesler 21:50 26 Mar 2005

Thgis last week, on first boot, my pc puts up the internet connection box, once evrything has loaded. Opening up the task manager and the firewall shows me nothing that I ca see wrong. However, there's now a Java 'Coffee cup' icon in Control Panel, and that wasn't there last week. THe only thing I know I've done recently is install plugins for non-porno sites when Firefox hinted I may need them. Now, AVG has found four embedded virii, all of which are associated with Java, and cannot be removed. HiJack This has found several entries as well.

I thought Firefox was safer than IE, but the old problems are staring again.
Any ideas, and thanx to all, etc.

I won't be online again until the A.M. , but will post back.

Thanks, VoG.

I wouldn't even know where to start with Java. Do I need to disable it, or leave it alone??

I would leave it alone.
