Hey guys,

 

I am running Windows XP version 5.1.  Kaspersky (13.0.1.4190) has identified a variant of the HEUR Trojan.  Specifically, it is the HEUR:Exploit.java.cve-2012-0507.gen variant.  Kaspersky claims that it is impossible to disinfect.  It recommends ignoring it, which I do not think is the right answer.  There are numerous online tutorials that provide removal instructions, but I am hesitant to attempt any of them because there does not appear to be a consensus approach.  You guys helped me out back in 2010 (ridding a rather nasty infection) and I've been a big fan ever since.  Can you provide direction with this HEUR annoyance?

 

Many many thanks!

First clear the Java cache

 

How do I clear the Java cache?

 

 

Now go to that location to insure that file is deleted and scan again.


How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
