Just did a scan with MSE and it detected a rovnix.w virus.

I clicked to remove the virus within MSE but wondering if there is anything I need to do??

Looks like it spreads using a software vulnerability in Java. (http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/threat/encyclopedia/entry.aspx?Name=Virus:DOS/Rovnix.W) So uninstall ALL versions of Java except the latest 8 update 5

So if I have removed it with MSE, should everything be fine? Also do I need to have Java installed for any particular reason?

Remove the temp files etc, disable system restore then turn it back on. Depends whats installed. If it needs Java it wont run without it. I dont have Java on these for FF or IE
