This is a harmless java exploit that can do nothing if you have the latest java and windows updates.

Go control panel>>double click java>>click the general tab, and click delete temporary internet files.

Thats it, harmless java exploit.

Are you up to date on all of your MS updates?
If not you need to get them.
Go to http://www.windowsupdate.com and install all critical updates.

Go to your control panel
(if in windows XP change over to the classic mode by clicking the link on the left just under your toolbars)
Open Java Plug-in
Click on the Cache tab
Click clear
Uncheck Enable Caching.

Let us know how it goes.

The cache tab is on an older version of java.

To completely empty your hava, go back to control panel>>Java>> but this time next to delete files, click settings. Then click delete files and it will ask you if you want to delete the three types of files...check them all then click ok.

No more java byte verify useless exploit.
