Hi

Could you tell me how best to deal with a java trojan which apparently is resistant to removal by avg free edition. If its a problem would I be as well just to remove java completely and reinstall? Would this fix it? If not what should I do?

Many Thanks

Will

willo500,

If it the java/byteware installed in the sun java folder, you can delete these manually, they in fact are a trojan which is set up to infect the Ms virtual machine, and will cause no harm to your p.c.

VoG™,

Too quick, and straighter to the point, than me.:)

Hi thanks for the speedy responses. It is not a false alarm VoG it keeps booting the user off the internet almost as soon as he is on and he has tried to remove it with AVG without success. (For the same reason it is not harmless bamfiesler)I am not sure if he will be able to stay online long enough to use the a2 solution proposed but will give it a go.

Thanks again,

Will
