    Do the following:
    Start --> Control Panel --> Java

    In the General tab, under "Temporary Internet Files", click the "Delete Files..." button.

    Thanks.

    No other antispy/antitrojan app (that i have on my pc) has detected this. Not even CounterSpy.
    Maybe is a new one.

    But the question still remains: What does NOD mean "The file can be deleted"? but no option to delete it? It means manually?

    Stephanos, did you try to empty your java cache, as mentionned before, and perform a scan/clean with nod32 after this ?

    Yes, everything is ok now.
    Well, i was thinking that by clicking the 'in depth analysis' button that nod scans and cleans. As i see now, it only scans.

    Re: Hoe to delete this trojan?

    i've found the same thing - i submitted a file recently to eset that looks to be a false positive - nod32 detects it and offers delete option, but if the file is put in a zip (not password protected), it says it can be deleted but there is no option to do so - as in stephanos.g's screenshot above.

    Couldn't be added to NOD32 cleaning engine this option: to delete entire archive if it finds a virus inside??

    I believe Marcos has mentioned this is not possible. In case you want to save some of the files in the archive.

    Deleting a whole archive would of course be a bad idea if, e. g., a nasty was found within a mail archive but I wonder about the java cache.
    Most times one has cought a baddie there he/she is advised to clean the cache - so it seems to me nothing important is ever stored there. Wouldn't it be possible for an AV to treat findings in java cache different from findings elsewhere?
    Sorry if this is a dump question but I often see ppl getting frightened of this kind of nasty because their AV cannot delete it and they don't know how to get rid of it (and as I have no use for java and therefore not even installed it, I don't know much about it).

    Thanks

    My preference is to cache nothing. Web pages, Java, etc. I think zero cache should be the default option in any program that uses caching.
    Temp files and caching are good hiding places for malware.
    Most people don't know this nor should they be expected to unless told. :)

    Of course, that seems to be the best way to handle this but I suppose the sun defaults aren't zero cache. Hm, maybe they could be convinced to change that in future versions - would be helpful for many users.

    Thx :)

    I agree. But then, average users will tell that surfing on web becomes slower ... :D :D

    And most people don't know how to delete the cache when a threat was found inside, and cannot be deleted it with AV, because it is located in a 'protected' area.
