    Hi everyone,
    Have limited computer knowledge,but slowly getting there...I did a Symantec Security check,which showed that I have 3 files infected in my temp internet files(JS Start Page-JS Exception exploitx2)
    I do all the usual housekeeping,empty everything once a week and empty recycle bin......so How do I track them down to delete them.Grateful for any help. Jude

    Try this:
    My computer/c drive/windows/temp internet files....then see if you can see the files in question and delete them.

    Or you could just go into IE then go tools/internet options/delete files....which will empty out all of your temp internet files (these are only used to store web pages you have visited so that they can be accesed quickly by your hard drive).

    These are java scripts probably downloaded while visiting a site. They are considered a security risk as they can be expoited.
    Do as the previous reply suggests.
    Also make sure you have an anti virus program running just in case.
