Hi,
I ran AVG anti-virus and it keeps returning unremovable Java/Bytes Verify. I tried all I know to remove it, yet can't. Please how do I remove this stubborn stuff.

Thanks.

Hi

Go to Control Panel --> Java Plug-in --> Cache tab --> press the Clear button.

Update your windows --> http://www.windowsupdate.com

Update Sun Java: latest version = J2SE v 1.4.2_06 JRE - http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html


Run your AV again.

Hello Goodluck... I saw this post and I must put in my .02 cents here.. I am having trouble with the very same thing... and I can't get it out. I have tried Cryo's fix there.. I have uninstalled the Java.. reinstalled a new version that is supposed to be compatible with Firefox.. and it just came back. I have even posted about this pesky virus.. and it is really stubborn.

Here is my post about Java/ByteVerify... *&%^#$ (lol)

Java/Bytes Verify is harmless if windows and java are up-to-date :thumbsup:

Thanks Cryo.. I googled the Java/ByteVerify and I got conflicting reports.. some said it was harmless and some said it was malicious. I will trust it to you and not worry about it.. But it keeps coming up in scans.

I think I am having this same problem as well, but I can not get to the websites to fix it. Windows update will not load, and the java update doesn't make it through the installation. I ran AVG, and did find the java/byte verify, but I don't know if the problem with the websites is related. Hotmail and yahoo (at least the games part) doesn't work either. Any help fixing this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Well, I can see I'm part of a trend in this topic. I just joined today as a direct result of repeatedly encountering this JAVA Byte Verify virus thingy! Found this place on Google and this topic as well.

At any rate, my PC Box is a P3 - XP home, broadband access, ZoneAlarm free, AVG 7.0 - up from free - and, even as a professional proofer I find it confusing. Sometime after buying it I discovered this JAVA Byte Verify (JBV). Well, I uninstalled JAVA, downloaded, reinstalled, no sign of JBV. Then after about a month, there it is again.

Went through the same procedure again, but this time it is back the next day. Yet another repeat, same result.

Should point out AVG keeps putting it in the virus vault, where I'm "assuming" it is out of harm's way. Must confess I'm not exactly sure about that, though.

Is this thing harmful? Why can't I get rid of it? Who let the dogs out?

Thanks.
