Thread: I had a virus, is it gone, am I safe?

  1. #1

    I had a virus, is it gone, am I safe?

    I use the free AVG anti-Virus program. It runs everynight. I was just looking at it for some reason and after it finished it said there was a virus, and AVG did not remove it or put it in the virus vault. I ran AVG again and it was still there. I tried to look where the virus was and it said temp internet, so I deleted all my files.

    When I ran AVG again after doing this, it was gone. However, when I looked at the list of virus' that my computer has had, they all come up the same one, and I am wondering if this virus is from a person or just a stupid virus that doesnt do anything? This is basically all the information I have about it: "Temp internet file Java/ByteVerify"

    Most of the relevant stuff about it HERE

    Why not run Hijack This yourself - since googling Java/ByteVerify is mostly trojan related.
