Hi there,

AVG has picked up the following 2 files that seemingly are viruses
Java/openstream Infected embedded object
Java/openstream Infected archived

To date i have turned off the system restore, and restarted the computer in safe mode and run AVG again but with no luck.

I am wondering if i am able to just delete the files to the recycle bin.
Both files are in the folder "jar" which is inside "cache" and both appear to be java installers.

I hope i have covered everything correctly but if you would like to help me and would like to know anything please just ask.

cheers
drseuss
