    Since I installed the lastest Java Runtime Environment v 5.0, I keep getting this pop up from http://jgen44.cjt1.net.....

    I would like to get rid of it but I can not block it.
    I tried windows XPs and Nortons pop up blockers. NO joy. Any ideas.

    I spoke(typed) too soon. I still get the pop up. It has something to do with a Java Request?

    I know there has been a java trojan getting around called javabyte.a on the trend micro site. Maybe this is what you have. What anti virus are you running and maybe try doing a scan from trend micro website.

    If you think .. it's caused by your Java Machine -- Remove it and then go to :- http://www.java.com/en/download/download_the_latest.jsp

    to re-install it.

    As for the JAVA/BYTE VERIFY VIRUS if you are running SUN Java.. it is harmless . But if you running Microsoft VM then it can be harmful -- These malicious applets are designed to exploit vulnerabilities in the Microsoft VM ( http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS03-011.mspx )


    If you want to absolutely clear your Sun Java cache , here's how :-

    Here are the instructions on how to manually remove these malicious applets from the JRE cache directory:

    From the Start button, click Settings > Control Panel
    In the Control Panel, open the "Java Plug-in Control Panel"
    Select the Cache Tab
    Click the Clear button inside the Cache Tab, which will clear your JRE cache directory


    Dont be surprized if you get that JAVA/BYTE VERIFY VIRUS back ; it's an old entrance exploit used by many porn and warez sites to dump on you those infamous downloaders , hoping you have the Microsoft Java installed on your PC.

    It is gone for now. aD is one of the places it pops up on. I was not worried that it would do any harm, it was just a pest. The only one I have so even more so a pain in the ass.

    I rid myself of the pop up but now when it tries it creates an error. I guess I cut off the tail not the head.
