    Dear all,

    This virus warning is a well-known hoax. You should not delete the file with the teddy bear icon as it is a normal part of the Windows operating system. However, it's unlikely that deleting it will cause much harm, unless you happen to be doing Javascript debugging (I think). For full details, see this page:

        Importance: Normal

        A virus has been passed to me by a contact. My address book was

        infected. Since you are in my

        address book there is a good chance that you will find it in your

        computer too.The virus called

        jdbgmgr.exe is not detected by Norton or McAfee antivirus systems. This

        virus sits quietly for 14 days

        before damaging the system. It is sent automatically by messenger and by

        the address book, whether or

        not you sent emails to your contacts. Here is how to check for the virus

        and how to get rid of it:

        1. Go to start then to find or search.

        2. In the file holder option type the name jdbgmgr.exe

        3. Be sure you search your c: drive and all subfolders and any drives

        you may have.

        4. Click "find Now"

        5.The virus has a teddy bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe. DO NOT OPEN

        IT !!!!!!

        6. Go to the edit

        light the file without opening it.

        7. Now go to the file

        will send it to the recycle bin.

        Right click on the recycle and select "empty recycle bin". If you find

        the virus, you must contact everyone

        in your address book so they caneradicate it in their address books.


        To do this:

        1. Open new email message

        2. Click on the address book icon next to the To:

        3. Highlight every name and add to the BCC

        4.Copy this message and paste to an email.
