    Hi, I just finished a scan with AVG Free. It said it found 3
    viruses of the Java Byte Verify type. I clicked details and where it showed completed test, it showed the virus amount. I highlighted it and clicked remove. Did i only remove the test results, and if so, when i do another sacn and they show up again, how do i get rid of them with AVG Free.

    Clearing out the Java cache should take care of that.

    Click Start | Settings | Control Panel
    Click the Java Plugin Icon
    Click the Cache tab
    Click the Clear button and click OK to confirm
    Note: Please repeat this procedure for each "Java Plugin" button in your Control Panel.

    or

    Control Panel > Java > General tab
    Temporary Internet Files > Delete Files
    Checkmark all 3 options and click OK.

    (y) :) Hi, I rescanned useing AVG Free, and nothing showed up.
    I guess that means everything is o. k. I don't know why they weren't taken care of the first time. I have it set to automatically
    heal all infections. Anyway, Thanks again, it's greatly appreciated.
    chuck.
