Hello. I ran a virus scan and it found two infected files which it could not 'heal'. I want to know if these files are something that would hurt my computer if deleted, otherwise something I need.

Here are the two files.
-C:\Documents and Settings\Supervisor\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar
when I go to the file location, they both bring me to that address ^.

And if I should delete these files, how do I do it manually? Your help would be greatly apreciated. Thank you!.

Yes you can delete those files manually. To get to where those files are located you can either set your computer to show hidden files and folders and navigate there by hand, (you have show hidden files or you will not be able to navigate to this location because it is inside a hidden folder). Or you can copy this address to your clipboard C:\Documents and Settings\Supervisor\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar, then go to My Computer and paste it into the address bar, hit enter and be taken right to that location on your computer.

Once in that folder you can just delete the files in question, deleting them will not harm anything. The Java cache is a storage area it uses to put files temporarily to speed up its own application, not unlike what your browser does by putting files into its own cache so the next time you visit a web site it doesn't have download the whole page again.
There is no justice, there is just us.

or instead of trying to get there through explorer, go to:

Control Panel>>Double click the java icon>>Then click delete temporary files.
