How to Clean a Java Cache Folder

In some rare cases a few infected files and archives with infected files are detected inside Java cache folder. The location of this folder usually is:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\<user_name>\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\

Removing infection

To empty the cache folder, access it with Windows Explorer. Select all files and subfolders and then press the "Delete" button on a keyboard, or select the File->Delete menu option. As this folder contains only 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!
