    I keep gettting viruses in this Sun Java thing. The exact location is always:

    C:\Documents and Settings\myname\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi and then something.

    AVG is reporting it, Housecall finds it, Panda finds it, I delete it and retest and yet a week latder I get another infection with a different name via the same entry route.

    Is there something inherently wrong with this program - should I get rid?

    It has only happened since I updated from something to this version - sorry for not beign too specific.

    A favourite is the Java ByteVerify virus, although a few trojans have made their way in too.

    Never used to get these......

    Hi rbw91, I would suggest running through each step found here:

    At the end of that post there are links to discussions of further security for your system and how to tighten it so that your system is safe from infection and reinfection.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go...

    Cheers :D
