well Ive now got my first new computer Running Windows XP Media Edition , ( Acer E500 ) I am sitting here
in a small village in the jungle ( Central Thailand ) with no one around to ask for help..!!, So I hope a forum member can help this Newbie ..? I have downloaded AVG, ewido - ad-Aware - Spybot search & destroy - Windows defender - CW shredder - Clean up -

The AVG said I had downloaded this .... Trojen horse Downloader Agent 13 Al
and Java / ByteVerify .... Ive put them all in the Virus vault, but really don't know what to do next...?
but it seem's AVG cannot remove the problems only keep them in the V/Vault...? Ive read all through the forum information but its given me a headache and it make me think I should have started to learn more about computers years ago instead of playing pool !!!!

can you help me keep my brand new computer nice and clean...Thanks

Java/ByteVerify is actually a method to exploit a security vulnerability in the Microsoft Virtual Machine that is stored in the java cache as a java-applet. The vulnerability arises as the ByteCode verifier in the Microsoft VM does not correctly check for the presence of certain malformed code when a java-applet is loaded. Attackers can exploit the vulnerability by creating malicious Java applets and inserting them into web pages that could be hosted on a web site or sent to users as an attachment.

AVG will find Java/ByteVerify but cannot get rid of them. If you have the Java-Plugin installed, then deleting them from the Java cache will eliminate the problem.

Clear the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) cache. To do this:
  • Click Start > Control Panel.
  • Double-click the Java icon in the control panel.
    -The Java Control Panel appears.
  • Click "Settings" under Temporary Internet Files.
    -The Temporary Files Settings dialog box appears.
  • Click "Delete Files".
    -The Delete Temporary Files dialog box appears.
    -There are three options on this window to clear the cache.
    • Delete Files
    • View Applications
    • View Applets
  • Click "OK" on Delete Temporary Files window.
    -Note: This deletes all the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the cache.
  • Click "OK" on Temporary Files Settings window.
  • Close the Java Control Panel.
You can also view these instructions along with graphics here.

VERIFY your JAVA Software Installation & Version here.

For other trojans download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
