OK, I used CCleaner to delete the startup entry for Java(tm) Plug-in 2 SSV Helper in IE by right clicking on it, so that seems to be one issue solved at least. However, CCleaner doesn't have a similar option to delete JDK or any other add-on in FF. Strange .

Next, I made a Paragon backup of my C: drive and deleted all the Java folders. I'll keep them in the recycle bin too while I observe if there are any issues over the next 2 weeks.

I also downloaded HJT and ran a scan but the JDK Firefox add-on doesn't show up. Again, I'm puzzled. I'm wary of deleting the Java dll file in the SysWOW64 folder since it's a Windows folder. Even if I do delete it, FF may still show it has a JDK add-on even though the dll has been deleted. Do you think I should chance deleting it? I don't know what else to do about this add-on.
