  • Hi,

    Regarding this alert, please refer to the following links:

    TrojanDownloader:Java/OpenStream.AJ

    I would like to provide the following suggestions:

    1. You may specifically give the Administrator the full permissions and then boot in Safe mode to run the antivirus software to remove the virus.

    2. Please contact your antivirus program manufacturer support to see if they have special update or tools to complete remove the viruses.

    3. Actually, the officially recommended method is still to format and re-install the compromised computer from a known good build (i.e. operating system CD + all security patches while disconnected from the network). For more information on hacking, please see these links:

    4. You can also contact your antivirus vendor for assistance with identifying or removing virus or worm infections. If you need more help with virus-related issues, contact Microsoft Product Support Services.
