Removing Bots

If a Bot infects your computer, the RUBotted system tray icon changes to alert you.

Because Bots are typically computer worms (malicious software that can propagate from one computer to another), you must scan and clean your computer with an effective antivirus program to remove them.
If you have an antivirus program installed, download the latest update and scan your computer. To scan and clean your computer for free, visit HouseCall online.

I would recommend getting some decent Virus Software as it seems what you have doesn't work, most people are using Avast on Windows 7 and it seems to do a good job.

I recommend that you follow the advice of the software that you are using. From their webiste:

Are you referring to the Java message?

A bot is usually a "backdoor Trojan" that has control over your computer. It relays your personal information back to another domain.
