First, you maybe using AVG – it is the anti-virus program that generates this FALSE positive virus message.

If you have downloaded them from producer site, you can ask their support to confirm it is not infected.

This problem started after installing JavaStandardEdition 1 6 Development kit, with NetBeans.
