It seems to me a virus that comes with a Jave script. I think they are quite common. . "Delete" is probably the smartest thing to do. And I hope you have lots of pictures above, if you have to reboot. in the future, analyze the file with Virus Total, get a second opinion

Re: Microsoft Security Essentials shows a virus in the java 7 on windows 8

After all the answers and decided to Google a little to recover from an image and delete the partition in place. Everything looks good again now. Thanks mark the Virus Total link I've actually gone so far as to remove Java completely from all my installations. If youíre going to be a risk I'd rather not have it, taking into account the number of sites still use it is not worth but I still had the impression that Java is not per se that has given you a problem, but a Java script was floating around. You may need Java to eradicate the afternoon may not be such a good idea

I am absolutely not an specialist in security, but at the same time searching Google I found a graph illustrating how the majority of PCs are infected and Java was on top of the list of security flaws. As I'm not an expert and may have been a little rash removing Java entirely, but I'll see how I go without her and if need be reinstalled, but so far all my regular sites work well.

Its look like the malicious thing is in the cache, you can remove or delete the java cache quite simply
  • Just Go into the Control Panel and double-click the Java Icon.
  • On the General tab, beneath Temporary Internet Files, click the Settings button.
  • After that, click on the Delete Files button
  • There are two choices in the window to clear the cache and Leave BOTH Checked
    Code:
    Applications and Applets
    Race and Log Files
  • Click OK on remove Temporary Files Window
  • Keep in mind this deletes every Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.
  • Just Click OK to go away from the Temporary Files Window
  • Just Click OK to go away from the Java Control Panel.
