    wel i was wrong lol mine of must of been difrent

    JS.Exception.Exploit is an exploit that allows Java applets to run arbitrary code on unpatched versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. In many cases, the applet may perform simple actions, such as changing your Internet Explorer home page. However, it can also be programmed perform actions such as a mass mailing, as in the case of VBS.Loding.A@mm, or to create file on your computer that perform almost any malicious

    Sometimes deleting the file causes it to harm your computer. You could say that it triggers something to harm your computer.

    Chastity - just a quick verification - as long as Auto-Protect is enabled, real time scanning is to turned on. Correct?

    yep, also depends on the configuration.. if it's set to default then it should scan eveything that's run, opened, moved, copied, or downloaded, and email too..
