I've virus scanned and I even caught it when it first infected my laptop. However, every time I try to delete it , it says the file is write protected, and every time I try to quarantine or clean, it says it can't

I am currently virus scanning in Safe Mode but I can't imagine that would make a difference.

Please someone help me get rid of the Trojan Exploit-ByteVerify. ;-;

Oh and I wasn't exactly sure where to put this so feel free to move it elsewhere.


Edit: I managed to quarantine the files that were infected while in safe mode. Should I just leave things that way? I was afraid to delete because I wasn't sure if those files were needed.

This 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. Trojan Exploit ByteVerify indicates that a Java applet was found on your system containing the exploit code. See here.

Follow the instructions here to clean your cache.
