I have just got an email from a friend saying that her pc has the bug bear virus.

I have found a file named jdbgmgr.exe with a teddy bear icon. Is this it and is it safe to delete it.

Will it have infected my floopys and cdr.

I have upto date Norton av so wonder if this is it how i got it. Im running windows XP.

Thanks.

It is a hoax. Do a search on these columns for the details BUT don't delete ANYTHING.

jdbgmgr.exe IS NOT a virus it is an integral part of windows java Operating system, do not delete it
