This article describes how you can clean a Java cache folder.


Cleaning the folder


In some rare cases, a few infected files and archives with infected files are detected inside Java cache folder. To remove the infection, empty the cache folder as follows:


  1. Click Start > Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Java icon to open the Java Control Panel. (Don't know where to find Java Control Panel?)
  3. Click Settings under Temporary Internet Files. The Temporary Files Settings dialog is displayed.
  4. Click the Delete Files button. The Delete Files and Applications dialog is displayed.
  5. Select the check boxes and click OK.

As this folder only contains cached files, no actual data is lost in the operation.


Warning: Be careful when deleting files. Make sure that you are deleting files inside the Java cache folder only. Otherwise you may damage your system.
