    In my case, I just went into the Jave cache folder:

    Documents and Settings
    \username\ApplicationData\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\

    and deleted it. Apparently it is harmless if you are using Sun Java or the lastest patched version of MS Java.

    Hi,

    Sorry, I do not know where Sun Jave puts its cache files in W2000. Maybe someone else on this forum can direct you to the correct folder. You should be able to search and find the file in question on your system, but I am not familiar with Jave on W2000 so can't help you much more than this. Hope you find it, but it should be harmless if you are running Sun Java.

    Hello everyone. I am having the same problem with the Java Byte Verify. Everyone is saying to go to the java cache well I am sorry but I must be stupid I cannot find it. They say go to Settings Control and then Java well I have no such thing. Can anyone help with this? Oh yeah you can laugh if you like. Thank you.

    Hi angelina5, and welcome to Wilders.

    Could you please give the name of the file and it's path, along with what antivirus is flagging it as infected. Please include your operating system too.

    If you are using Sun Java, then clicking on the link in GlobalForce's post (the one above your's) you'll see where ronjor has explained how to find Sun Java's plugin to clear the cache.

    Let us know if that helps.

    Regards,

    snap

    A DOS batch file targeting the files, via the path on the AV will delete it.
