    Dear folks,

    My anti-virus found the following 2 beasties in the Documents and Settings folder:

    JS: ClassLoader-7

    JS: Exploit-Bytverify-11

    Given the various arsenals I have on my machine, I'm surprised these got through...any advice? Many thanks!

    Kind Regards,

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    I've feeling that your machine has Java also. Go here and do an online virus scan from http://housecall.trendmicro.com/. Don't forget to check the 'Auto clean option' there.

    With Thanks !

    Many thanks for the suggestions. I suspected a Java problem. I already removed the jar cache which Avast kindly recommended.

    Regards,

    Alex
