Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have just found a very significant Virus on my machine and
followed the procedure below to delete. Please ensure I have
this to you by following the procedure below.
I just received a message from a contact who told me that her
book had been infected by a virus which was possibly passed on
everyone in her address book, I did what she instructed me to
found that my computer did have the virus described..
The virus (called jdbgmgr.exe) is not detected by Norton or
anti-virus systems. The virus sits quietly for 14 days before
the system. It is sent automatically by messenger and by the
book, whether or not you sent e-mails to everyone. I followed
instructions and deleted it, but it has probably been passed on
everyone in my address book (which means you).
I am therefore giving you the exact instructions and information

- Good day all -
-- This is a hoax - it was posted on McAfee's site in April of 2002. If you do as the message says it will cause problems on your machine.
-- If you get these messages - usually marked URGENT or similar - check them out first before you pass them along. You can copy the file
name into Google search engine like this " jdbgmgr.exe " and it will take you to a variety of sites that should reveal it as a hoax very quickly. Or
you can go to your choice of Virus program's site and check. Or search for virus hoaxes on the internet. The reason it is not found by a virus
checker is that it is not a virus. It is a part of your Windows system files necessary for operation of the computer - Java in this case.
-- There are many of these hoaxes around. Spread by those who make access to your system. Lock down the system with a firewall and
proper settings in your Email program.
