After your positive feedback about adutmipc.com I suspected that something was wrong about consultant's technical 
report that claimed that classes were downloaded from the site mentioned above. 

So I purged Java's cache and I repeated some tests available on the site. The classes were not found again!

At this point I scheduled a mass scanning of Java cache directory and I noticed that another ws had that classes.

They were downloaded from another site that I will publish after some checks.

So could I think that auditmypc.com is not responsible in any way of that classes?

In the meantime the consultant has been invited to have an holiday... and to change is job!

You'll see various references to the viruses you listed below at the
following website:
http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/alphalisting.asp?NAV=12&ltr=J

Trojans are common w/ websites. Doesn't look harmful to me.

1) Run Disk Cleanup.
2) Run your Spyware Removal Program (e.g. Lavasoft Ad-aware)
*Make sure you update Ad-aware before running
3) Run your Antivirus Program (e.g. Symantec Antivirus)
*Make sure you update your virus definition files before running

Good luck. Cheers!

Does anyone knows more about auditmypc.com?. I used their web functionality called "CHECK YOUR PRIVACY" and they 
installed some java classes. Scanning with Microsoft Windows Live Safety Center I noticed among results what this 
tool calls viruses:

* Java/Bytverify
* Trojan:Java/Classloader
* TrojanDownloader:Java/OpenConnection.F
