Virus - Java/ByteVerify

  fourjays 10:57 29 Dec 2004

This morning I turned on my computer, and as usual, AVG 7.0 Pro started doing its scan for virus', and when it had finished, it said that there was a virus in:
C:\Documents and Settings\Games Machine\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar\...

with 4 folders in that, which all start classload.jar followed by a number sequence, then .zip.

AVG doesn't appear to have removed them, so should I manually delete the files (is it safe to?)?

PS: I didn't download anything yesterday, so where could the virus have come from?

start/programs/accessories/system tools/disk cleanup

make sure temporary internet files is clicked

then reboot and it will be gone !

So it isn't a virus then? The AV just thinks it is?

Anyway, how can I manually delete the cache, as I don't have a 'cache' tab in the java control panel, as described in the solution on that page.

IT worked exactly as you said mrdsgs. I cleaned out all of the temp files, rebooted, and scanned - no probs found. Thanks.
