Hi,

I'm using a Windows XP SP2 PC with PC-Cillin Internet Security 2006.

When I did a virus scan yesterday, PC-Cillin found 3 viruses which it couldn't remove. It said to look on the Trend Micro website, but that just had discriptions of what they were, not how to remove them.

The viruses were called JAVA-BYTEVER.A-1. The filenames were Gummy.class, Counter.class and VerifierBug.class.

They were supposedly located here: C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar\arr3.jar-44f46a26-1caed3fd.zip

However, when I went to C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar, there was no file called arr3.jar-44f46a26-1caed3fd.zip in there.

Please can someone suggest what I can do to fix the problem?

Thanks,
Joe

Hey there Joe, welcome to Bleeping Computer.
Sorry for the delay in the reply.

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.
Note: If you want to delete a specific application and applet from the cache, click on View Application and View Applet options respectively.

Let me know how it goes..
David

Hi David,

Thanks for that. I did what you said and it seemed to work.

I'll let you know if they show up again on my next scan, but I'm sure it'll be alright now.

Thanks again,
Joe
