I use ZoneAlarm Security Suite 6 and am having trouble getting rid of the Java.Shinwow.BA virus. Whenever I scan my whole Computer using the free Ad-Aware, about 15 Mintues into the scan ZoneAlarm virus scan results come up with the virus Java.Shinwow.BA. I can't get rid of the virus because in the treatment column it has error in it. In the right hand pane it says "No treatment available for this item".

It hasn't done any damage yet I need a way to get rid of this virus because it get's under my nerves.
