AVG 7.1.371 with Virus base 267.14.1/206 finds 16 or so Trojans and Java/Byte Verify problems in the sun\java\deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar directory. Pic below. Are these really virus files or is this a false-positive? AVG won't heal these files after a scan and gives me no option to move them to the virus vault. Any help appreciated.

Thanks for the reply - I made it to the Microsoft knowledge-base article on this and it seems it wouldn't have affected my system as I don't appear to use Microsoft virtual Java. I deleted all the files.
