    Hi,

    I was just scanning my PC on virusses and it found one in Java and I was wondering if I have to delete it.
    I have NOD32 and it gave me the following notice:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Jelmer\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\43\40c5eeab-7b221084 » ZIP » buildService/MailAgent.class - een variant van Java/Agent.DM trojaans paard

    the underline is in Dutch and means: a variant of Java/Agent.DM trojans horse

    I googled it and couldn't find anything so I was wondering if someone could help me :)

    Hi and welcome

    You can safely delete it. In fact, you can empty the entire Java cache.

    Go to Control Panel > Java
    Under the General tab, you will see Temporary Internet Files, click on Settings
    Click on Delete Files then hit OK
