      Subject: virus problem from me possibly

      Hello everyone,

      I've been nailed with a nasty address book virus and somebody sent me
      this email to find it and get rid of it. Apparently Norton's and
      MacAfee don't clean this rat. Since you all are in my address book, it
      may have infected your systems.

      Here is the message I received, and sure enough, I had the file in my
      windows systems file. Please take a moment and follow the instructions!

      Nancy

      I just received a message today from one of my friends in my Address
      Book.
      Their Address Book had been infected by a virus and it was passed on to
      my
      computer. My Address Book, in turn, has been infected. The virus
      (called
      jdbgmgr.exe) is not detected by Norton or McAfee anti-virus systems.
      The
      virus sits quietly for 14 days before damaging the system. It's sent
      automatically by the messenger and by the Address Book, whether or not
      you
      sent emails to your contacts. I have checked, found it, and deleted it.

      Here's how to check for the virus and how to get rid of it:


      DO THIS:

      1. Go to start, Find or Search option.
      2. In the files/folder option, write the name jdbgmgr.exe
      3. Be sure you search your C: drive
      4. click "find now"
      5. the virus has a teddy bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe
      DO NOT OPEN IT
      6. Right click and delete it. It will then go to the Recycle Bin
      7. Go to the Recycle Bin and delete it there as well.
      IF YOU FIND THE VIRUS, YOU MUST CONTACT ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR

      ADDRESS BOOK
      SO THEY CAN ERADICATE IT IN THEIR OWN ADDRESS BOOKS. SORRY ABOUT
      THIS. I'M
      SURE EVERYONE IN MY ADDRESS BOOK WILL HAVE IT.
