    Did some quick reading in the Java Forum. Some are saying it is a false positive. Not all agree. However they do seem to say that clearing the Java cache will take care of it. Let me know if you need instructions on how to do it. Side note; A while back I read that the cache was a weakness in Sun Java and by limiting it to 0 MB you reduced the risk. I am not a program writer so this worked well for me with no apparent side effects.

    A couple are cookies that I would`t be concerned with right now. The first one that jumps out at me is the "mywebsearch". Do you have an additional toolbar installed that you do not want? Dose "mywebsearch", or something like it show up in your add\remove programs? Are you running XP? Not sure of just how much this forum gets into helping with removal. Hoping a Member with more time will jump in here so I do not over step.
