    Today when AVG ran it's sceduled anti-virus scan it detected a threat which it said that it deleted.
    I did a Google search and someone posted on CNET that they had gotten the exact same thing (I copied the name and where it was located).
    They were told there because it appeared to be in the Java cache to clear that (so I did that, too).
    I am now running SpySweeper.
    Is there anything else that I ought to be doing?
    Thanks!

    I did a search and someone else had the same result on their AVG scan and it appears that it was a false positive (thankfully!).
