My computer was infected with virus Java\ByteVerify, virus Java\OpenStream and trojan horse Java\ClassLoader.

I deleted the java cache folder to delete the viruses and the trojan horse.

How do I reinstall java?

Start by uninstalling ALL the J2SE runtimes you find in Add/Remove Programs and reboot.

Delete the folder C:\Programs Files\Java.

Now download and install the latest runtime (JRE5.0 update 6) from here:


After installation rebootr and test.
