Java Virus ???

I am a firm believer in Avira. I use it on all of my machines for anti-virus. The way that I became a believer was in Nassau, the Bahamas. We need a cheap machine to act as a modem answer gateway. We walked over to the local Radio Shack store and bought the cheapest Pentium-knock-off that they had. It came loaded with all sorts of stuff, like Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and all of the expensive programs.

This being the Caribbean, and the land of the Pirates of the Caribbean, of course it was all cracked stuff, loaded with viruses. I did my best to clean the machine with every available package, including Norton, McAfee and such -- all to no avail. Avira (free personal download) was the only one that did it.

So, today, Avira began its scan, and this showed up in the transcript pad:

Begin scan in 'C:\'
