I received a McAfee alert stating this virus is on my machinge: 0000000a.js
McAfee said the virus cannot be cleaned, deleted or quaranteed. McAfee said
the complete file name is...
C:\ProgramFiles\Opera7\profile\cache4\opr01ukg.htm \0000000a.js
What kind of virus might this be? Why does McAfee say the file cannot be
deleted? Can I just manually delete it?

That's the file name not a virus name?

Was Opera running at the time? If so the cache file may be in use.

How about quitting Opera and deleting the cache directories, everything
under cache4 (keeping the cache4 directory?

Even try under Preferences / History and Cache / Empty now.
Other choices, cache - off, empty cache - on exit. Exit Opera check for
the file again then reset your cache to enabled etc after that file is
gone.

Then again it could be a false positive,

Don't rely on 1 single scanner.
