      Lorraine,

      Before I received your message I sent out warnings
      this morning after finding the teddy bear icon in my
      C: drive. Lorraine, are you saying that if I opened
      jdbgmgr.exe nothing would have happened? I can not
      afford to be mistaken about this.

      Thank you in advance for a confirmation.

      Laura Sims
