Hi,

Does anyone know of a virus named this way? I received a mail saying to delete this \"jdbgmgr.exe\" virus from my computer. I have an icon with a cute little bear and this file on my hard disk. Shall I erase it or is it just a hoax?

Thanks for your comments.

This is a Hoax - not a virus Sep 10, 2002

It belongs to the Windows operating system, and should not in any way be deleted.



See here:

So do not delete this file!



Best

Jerzy

Hi valetim and all!



Always check this kind of information in all those sites the other prozs say. They are always updated and have the latest news in this respect.



Otherwise, your system can be seriously injured.
