Trojan.Vundo.B and Java.Bytever.A-1 viruses... where did they come from and how do I get rid of them?

I went away on vacation for two weeks and in the time I was away viruses have infected my computer and I cannot seem to remove some of them. The two that are most persistant are

Java.Bytever.A-1
and
Trojan.Vundo.B

I have Norton and have updated my virus settings and run it a few times, I have also run Trend Micro Housecall at the recomendation of a friend.

I'm not the most computer literate person in the world so what I ideally need is a simple way to remove them and to keep them off my computer.

Any clues?

Symantec has a removal tool for Vundun.B.  You can download it here

For the other one, try running Spybot S&D or Webroot's SpySweeper to clean it.
In both cases, I'd recommend downloading the files to your pc then running the clean up in Safe Mode.

To get into Safe Mode, shut down PC and restart. Press F8 several times until you get the Start Up Menu. From there, choose safe mode.

Good luck.
