Whenever I scan, I find 36 viruses, or virusi, whatever. This is the message all of them carry.

"Java/ByteVerify
This virus abuses the security vulnerability in Java Virtual Machine described in MS03-011, which gives posibility of runing potentially dangerous operation to java program (like working with files).

Trojan horse using this vulnerability changes Internet Explorer Home page.

The fix is available on Microsoft web pages like WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com"

I did what it said, I went to Windows Update, grabbed every update they had, and scanned again. Nothing. Thats why I am here, my dear friends. I don't have a hijack this log or anything, if you really need those to figure this out, I'll do it, but it sounds like a common problem.

Close all browsers, Start > Settings > Control panel > Java Plugin [version number] > Choose Cache and click remove JAR Cache.

Then scan again and see if that worked.

In my control panel, I don't have a "Java Version #" option, just a "Java" option. It has the option to delete all temp files, is that what I want?
