    My free avg anti-virus has identified Java/ByteVerify and says its an imbedded object? But it doesn't say it removed it and it is not in the "virus vault". Just before I ran the antivirus scan my monitor screen was cut in half with everythint jammed on half of the screen, I finally got it back to normal and ran adaware(nothing) and then avg and got the report of the virus. Any suggestions?

    Run the removal program in Safe mode. Windows won't let "open" files get changed except by the program that opened them. If the infection is in a file that some program has opened, removing it is a problem. Safe mode bypasses all those start menu programs that open when you boot up, so the infected files probably won't be open, and the infection can be removed. After removal, clear any existing System Restore points, so the infection can't come back. ---911
