Hi
Download hijackthis and post the logfile here so someone can have a look at it for you. There's likely to be  related processes and files running that need deleting,
http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/x-Download-5034.html

Also what's your operating system? You'll need to disable system restore too depending on what you're running,

Hello metrogeeks =)

Goto Start>Run>msconfig>Startup
untick all applications except ur Antivirus and Firewall entires
restart and run this online virus scan to check if it can detect and remove it >> http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Also run some tools in Safemode to delete everything they detect !!

Thanks for the rapid response.  I am running XP Home Edition and I have disabled system restore and everything in the startup.  I also ran Spybot Search and Destroy, AdAware, Stinger, Nortons and Trend Micro.

Thanks again for the quick response.  

I was getting the alert from Trendmicro's on-line scan.

I may have stubbled on to a fix.  I went to C:\Documents and Settings\*user name*\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\Cache\ and renamed the two files I found.  I am no longer getting the virus alert from TrendMicro.  I guess that this corrected the problem.  Do you think that this corrected the problem?

Many thanks for your help and quick response,
Metrogeeks

right on..... now i remember which trojan is this.... faced it only once in past... so was not in mind... u probably went here >> http://java.com/en/download/help/cache_virus.jsp

so renaming those files were perfectly alright... and even as instructed in the above page, u can even empty that Cache folder easily :)

Cheers ^_^

I believe that you can also remove the JAVA BYTEVER by deleting it. Go into C:\documents and settings\username\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar      then delete what is listed.
