Can be you more specific on the type of exploit as there are many of them?

For example, many users have reported "Java/ByteVerify.Exploit.Trojan - Virus found in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) cache".

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.

The solution for a lot of these exploits are to:
Follow the instructions here to clean your JAVA cache.
Follow the instructions here to clean your your Web Browser Cache: IE, Netscape, Mozilla, Opera, AOL.

Hi, I had the same problem with AVG saying the same thing (and I can't open my desktop folder without Windows Explorer having to restart) but I'm using Vista. Do you have any suggestions that could help out with it, any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Welcome to BC futbolero

If you have an issue or problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic. Doing that will help to avoid the confusion that often occurs when trying to help two or more people in the same thread with different problems. Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be different based on the kind of hardware, software, system requirements, etc. you are using. Further, posting for assistance in someone else's topic is not considered proper forum etiquette.

Thanks for your cooperation.
