My AVGFree programme tells me that I have the following viruses on my computer
Does anyone know how serious they are and how I can get rid of them please

avg usually offers delete/move to virus vault, dont understand why it is not, suggest a full sweep also with the usual antispyware tools.

amazingly fast reponse, thanks, but AVG doesnt seem to want to tackle these viruses and the Java site instructions refer to a cache tab that doesn't sem to be there on my computer I am using XP by the way

Try running Ccleaner click here

It has Sun java listed in its "applications" tab(make sure that it is ticked) and might clear the cache where AVG is picking up the infections.

Tried that, even bought the full programme hoping it would prove useful, but still have the same result with AVG

Bought what full program?

Ccleaner is completely free and is the full program.

Bear in mind what it says in the link from VoG™.....The items found in the Sun Java cache are not active on your system.Even though AVG picks them up they are no threat to you.

To find the files and delete them manually you can either browse to them by using Explorer...Rt click the Start button and select Explore.Now you need to click the folder just under your log in name marked Application data.Next click on the Sun folder,then Java,then Deployment.You should now see the Cache folder......mine has two sub folders in there....tmp, and javapi which is the one you want.Open that and click v1.0 then open the jar folder.The files you want to delete should be in there.

Alternatively open Search from the start menu and look for "ApplicationData\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar"

without the quotes.

I was stupid enough to get two programmes mixed up as they appeared on the same site and bought the PConpoint program. I later downloaded the correct CCleaner which never did the trick, but used explorer to navigate to the offending files and deleted them.

Thak you very much all of you for the help, especially you gudulf for your parience
