I ran the virus scan on my computer and it said the computer has 4infections.

"Java/ByteVerify!Exploit" 3times
and
"Java/shinwow.N" 1 time

There wasn't an option to clean them, like there was last time I had an infection.

What is this and is there a way to get rid of them?

Thank You

Hey Cheryl, welcome to Bleeping Computer.

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.

David
