    Does anyone know of an F-Secure Internet Security 2004 user forum? I'm basically pleased with the program, but their online and email support is pretty dismal.

    Howzit bigc- yeah, should have mentioned I tried that. My question (still waiting for their reply) concernes recent scan-produced:

    Result: 5 viruses found
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\.jpi_cache\jar\1.0\count.jar-6f603a77-77e5ab34.RB0\BlackBox.class Infection: Exploit.Java.Bytverify
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\.jpi_cache\jar\1.0\count.jar-6f603a77-77e5ab34.RB0\VerifierBug.class Infection: Exploit.Java.Bytverify
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\.jpi_cache\jar\1.0\loader.jar-4dac568a-7254bb56.zip\Matrix.class Infection: TrojanDownloader.Java.OpenStream.c
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\.jpi_cache\jar\1.0\loaderadv90.jar-1a3c6bd6-620efdd5.zip\Matrix.class Infection: TrojanDownloader.Java.OpenStream.c
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\.jpi_cache\jar\1.0\plugin.jar-4921302e-517adc7a.zip\Beyond.class Infection: TrojanDownloader.Java.OpenStream.h

    but took no action (no disinfect, delete, or rename) and gave no indication of what I should think or do about this. Being a blundering learn by doing type I went to jpi folder and deleted some of these to no apparent ill-effect.

    But I'm still mystified, and know these things leave tracks in many places.

    You have to open the java console, open the cache and suppress manually the infected .jar files.

    those viruses only infect computers with(unpatched) micro$ofts java vm. they can not infect suns java, so just delete them..

    as you see most of those are compressed files, basically harmless

    edit: there are a couple of finnish forums with user to user support, obviously no use for you

    In the control panel of your operating system.

    Holy s**t!! Lots of stuff in there. I'm tempted to dump it all. Bad idea?

    I don't cache anything Java related. In fact, I don't cache anything anywhere.
    Unless you feel the need to cache, for the speed, I would dump it all and set it at zero.

    Ronjor-my feeling exactly. I'm a newbie-didn't know java had a cache. Have cable so no speed issue.
    Thanks for your interest.
