I had javabytevera & b, was able to delete them manually after I found them using trandmicro housecall. Norton didn't find it at all.

Why are there thieves, liars, murderers, virus writters and trojans? Simple, there is evil in the world. How to prevent javabytever etc? Just keep av up to date, windows updates current, Ad-Aware and Spybot current and scan often. I havn't had any javabytes since I updated my Spybot Immunizations. I strongly recommend that. :tazz:

Yeah, I had a lot of problems with java byte.Verify Trojan probs. My Norton Internet security 2004 never picks it up. But this solution has worked with me so far. Make sure you go through the entire virus cleaning protocol outlined in the beginning of the forums. Then:
1) Go to control panel and switch to classic view
2) Click your java icon
3) On the General tab you'll see "Temporary Internet files"
4) Click on settings and the third button on top should say "View applets"
5) Hit that and you'll see all of your cached java scripts (also hold data not erased by cleaners about you internet history)
6) Go to options and uncheck "enable caching"
7) You may want to delete all the cached files found in the list…I did just to be safe, and I also shrunk the cache size to 5000 KB to keep it under control.
-this keeps java from storing scripts that covertly hold Trojan like code on your system.
-apparently when you download certain media from certain sites, the code is surreptitiously embedded. The scrip activates itself out of zip files that are cached by your Java 2 platform during its normal routing. Damage is minimal (so far) by these "Trojans" but there are several classes. Once I disabled Java's ability to keep the data stored, they haven't been able to stay in the system long enough to activate.

Hope this helps,
