installApplet.class found in symantec scan

I just ran symantec and the Lavasoft AdAware and found a few things. I thought I had gotten rid of the trojan.byteVerify but I'm not sure because every scan I do is still showing this stupid installApplet.class file that I already deleted. So when I highlight it and try to just delete or clean it tells me the file has been moved or something of that sort. My browser also randomly jumps to porn or other various sites without me touching it, so I'm guessing this virus is doing that too. the copy/paste doesn't work either, and hasn't for about 5 or so days now. I can copy, but I can't paste/ctlV. Help me out please! I've got windows XP home edition, and I REALLY don't want to do the whole format thing :(

Here's the entry that broke your "paste" option.
O20 - AppInit_DLLs: pushow70.dll


Download Killbox:
http://www.atribune.org/downloads/KillBox.exe
*Select the "Delete on Reboot" option.
*Copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\pushow70.dll


*Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".
*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt. If the computer doesn't restart, just restart manually.


Run hijackthis again and fix this entry if it's still present:

Try Ewido.
Download and install the free version of Ewido anti-malware.
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
Update first then scan in safe mode.

Where is the trojan located? in the temp or in your java cache?
If its in the java cache, you need to empty the java cache:
If your version of Sun Java is 1.5 and above, it's recommended you follow the instructions on the Sun web site:
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000020300.xml 
Otherwise:
Click Start | Settings | Control Panel
Click the Java Plugin Icon
Click the "Cache" tab
Click the "Clear" button and click OK to confirm

You need to fix the following:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://channels.aimtoday.com/search/aimtoolbar.jsp

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://channels.aimtoday.com/search/aimtoolbar.jsp

You need to check this out:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [tunebite.exe] C:\Program Files\tunebite\tunebite.exe -hidden

Is this program known to you? If not, fix it.

Reboot. Any change?

Microsoft have produced a patch to address this issue:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS03-011.mspx

Norton's own recommendations:

Java have produced a solution to this:

And please be aware that this can sometimes be a false positive when you run av software with Adaware. See here:
