ive just got emailed this :

Sorry to send this message; unfortunatly my computer has become infected with a virus. Everything is okay as I caught in time.
Basically it sits dormant in your machine for two weeks and then starts playing havoc.
Don't worry it's really easy to get rid of. Just follow the instructions below. When getting rid Windows will warn you that your deleting a program file. The file your deleting is windows Debugger. It won't affect the working of your computer at all. Any important window files are apparently locked up out of harms reach, so you can't delete anything vital.
Anyway here you go:

My address book has been infected with a virus, and as a result, so

by
messenger and by the address book, whether or not you
send emails.
To get rid of it:
1. Go to Start, then Find or Search.
2. In Files/Folders, write the name jdbgmgr.exe
3. Be sure to search in your "C" drive
4. Click Find or Search
5. The virus has a teddy bear logo with the name

jdbgmgr.exe

DO NOT OPEN
6. Right click and delete it
7. Go to the recycle bin and delete it there also.
IF YOU FIND THE VIRUS, YOU MUST CONTACT EVERYONE
IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK.

I'm really sorry for any messing about caused. I caught this virus exactly the same way as you did.


any one know about this ? i

This sounds like an email I received a few weeks ago.

I deleted the file stated, and then found out, by reading a well known computer magazine, that it was a hoax.

If you have deleted this file, there is a programme you can download which replaces it.

let me know if you need this programme, and I will sort out the details for you.


Hope this helps
