      The warning regarding this virus is a HOAX. Please disregard. Further
      information at this link:

      Here is an excerpt:

      In April 2002 there appeared a hoax message concerning a new virus
      that was reportedly discovered in Windows utility JDBGMGR.EXE. The
      jdbgmgr is a standard windows component that is found in every
      windows installation, it is used as Java debugger manager in
      Microsoft Java runtime engine. We checked several versions of this
      utility from Windows installations and found nothing malicious in
      them.

      Please ignore this hoax or anything similar warning about jdbgmgr.exe
      and don't pass it on.

      If you have deleted JDBGMGR.EXE from your system, it can be restored
      by installing updated version of Microsft Virtual Machine or Internet
      Explorer.

      Please note that some e-mail worms (for example, Magistr) might
      sometimes send an infected JDBGMGR.EXE in an e-mail attachment, but
      this infection is caused by Magistr not JDBGMGR by itself. So the
      bottom line is, if you receive JDBGMGR.EXE or any other windows
      component by email, it is most probably a file infected by a virus.
      If you find JDBGMGR.EXE from your system directory, it is most
      probably a clean file.
