AVG did it's stuff and found 10 infected files.i managed 2 send a cuple 2 virus vault but no idea wot 2 do with the others.no idea how they got there either.they're in application data/sun java/deployment ( wotever that is)virus identified java/byte verify,virus found small and trojan startpage.ADE.2 of them say infected archive and the others infected,embedded object.where the hell do i start?
When certain AVs detect an infected .jar file with that particular path, it is, in a sense, a false positive and results from the compressed nature of .jar files. AVG is one of those that can throw this up. click here
There should be a Java icon in control panel i cant say what that would be called in ME as i have never used it i was assuming you were using XP,sorry,but clearing the java cache should clear the problem.
it was just an icon with java nxt 2 it.me was looking down the list under o!!! deleted all the temp internet files in that general section. btw.when i open java ZA asks me if i want 2 allow platform standard edition binary access.do i say yes?
I would say yes,i think but am not sure it is the update part of sun java looking for updates it is called jusched.exe on my machine,but i am by no means certain if it is the same thing,i dont use ME and i dont use ZA,maybe s1 who does could answer better).You may also need to allow it to be able to accsess web pages that have java content.
