Hi,

This is something in your java cache, just a leftover (isn't always malware though, but they can be deleted anyway). To delete these easily, Clear your Java cache:

Clearing Java Cache:

  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Java Icon (coffee cup) in the Control Panel.
  • It will say "Java Plug-in" under the icon.
  • Under Temporary Internet Files, click the Settings button.
  • Click the Delete Files... button below. Make sure next are checked:
      Applications and Applets
      Trace and Log Files

    [*]Click OK on Delete Temporary Files Window.

    Note: This deletes ALL the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.

    [*]Click OK to leave the Java Control Panel.
