Viruses found by AVG

Hi there, I have windows zp home SP2 with AVG 7.0. When scanning last nite, AVG found that 6 files where infected with different viruse and one trojan. Java/ByteVerify is the name of the virus apprantley from the five files that are infected. I can't seem to find the name of the trojan, but I also scanned with Symantec's online scanner also last nite and that told me about thye 5 infected files and one trojan. My internet connection has seemed much slower recentley and download's aren't as fast too.

Can anyone help? I have scanned my comp with Ad Aware, spybot and microsoft's antispyware, all are updated and find no nasties. AVG and ZA are also up to date and I also have spywareblaster, again up to date!

From click here and scan, but make sure you download the free version over in the left column. I have found it invaluable.
Or if you don't wish to do that a scan with
click here this has worked in the past for me where AVG hasn't removed them.

Also clean out all your temporary files and disable system restore and scan again with all your apps

AVG found it on my PC. Quarantining it in virus vault seemed to do the trick. Online checking suggested it was a vulnerability rather than a virus. Have now installed the latest version of Sun Java and expected byte verify to appear but it didn't. Either Sun have fixed the vulnerability or it really was a virus. Suggest you uninstall current Java, download and install new version.

Have cleared files and disabled system restore as suggested and still AVG finds infected and files and one trojan. Will quarantine them as suggested, thanks for the help everyone!

I have uninstalled Java and searched for a newer version on the net and J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 update 2 has downloaded and installed, is this the latest version?
