need some thoughts...

I was unlucky enough to get a java exploit virus on my pc?

it quarantined about 6 or 7 files? in ms security essentials as java exploit, and i went to java website and verified ver 7u7 was installed.

ran Wireshark, traced ip i think. i want to learn how this stuff works, so I'm wanting to rip out all my important data, then un-quarantine the virus, and see whats going on.

searched all day with no ideas what i can be doing to see what its doing, like using process explorer, Wireshark,netstat, etc.

any thoughts on how to see what this thing will/can do? how it operates?

i won't connect to internet so i should see if its trying to call home. i think i still need to run something to get it installed into the os.

any thoughts appreciated
