    I am using AVG Antivirus 7.0, which i have set to run minimally in the background monitoring processes on my computer.

    While recently running Ad-Aware, AVG detected a virus giving the message:
    "While opening file: C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-aware 6\Cache\BlackBox.class Virus identified Java/ByteVerify"

    It will not allow me to heal it, delete it, or even move it to vault.

    I even went into the lavasoft folder listed and the Cache folder it mentions does not exist.....

    What should I do to remove this virus?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Why don't you go to the link and run the online scan and see if it detectes the malware and can delete it. There is a chance it is a false alarm. so we want to double check to be sure online scan

    I had the same exact thing. Ran the online scan as per your suggestion and it picked up 14 Jave Byte Verify. It says they are noncleanable and I can't see exactly where they are on my computer. Also, I can't figure a way to print the results and see exactly where they are on my computer. I know it is in Document and Settings/......... Should I delete these files? Thanks for your help.

    Hi ProtectorSoG, and welcome to Wilders.

    The information in this Lavasoft KB article may solve the problem of why you are seeing AVG flagging a virus: http://www.lavahelp.com/articles/v6/03/04/1901.html

    Regards,

    I get 3 alerts from AVGs resident shield for the Javabyte/Verify {a.class, blackbox.class, verifyer.class}
    I dunno...
    I have all of the Microsoft Critical Updates (always up-to-date) and still had the terrible hickjacker
    START.CHM and it's ACCESS[1] file: perhaps the JAVAbyte/Verify, even though it is quarrentined, allows these flaws and allowed the Start.chm porn site to embed itself into the registry.
    I am saying a lot of "WHAT IFs" and know little about the subject but maybe there is a relation. o_O
    Cheers
