    Default Virus Alert

    Just Received this e mail

    there is a new virus out and it will corrupt ur whole computer

    what you have to do is search for the file called JDBGMGR.exe
    dont open it
    when it is located you should delete it straight off ur pc, even from the
    recycle bin.

    anybody else heard about this

    Cheers Jeff

    This is a hoax that, like the SULFNBK.EXE Warning hoax, tries to persuade you to delete a legitimate Windows file from your computer. The file that the hoax refers to, Jdbgmgr.exe, is a Java Debugger Manager. It is a Microsoft file that is installed when you install Windows
