I have recieved an email, this is doing the rounds again.


Quote.......

Unfortunately, a virus has been passed on to me by a contact. My address
book WAS infected.

Since you are in my address book, there is a good chance you will find it
in your computer too. My sincere apologies.
The virus (called jdbgmgr.exe) is not detected by Norton, AVG
or McAfee antivirus systems. The virus sits quietly for 14 days before
damaging the system. It is sent automatically by messenger and by the
address book, whether or not you sent e-mail to your contacts.

Here's how to check for the virus and how to get rid of it:

YOU MUST DO THIS.

1. Go to start, Find or search option.

2. In the file folder option, type the name jdbgmgr.exe

3. Be sure you search your C: drive and all subfolders and any other drives
you may have.
4. Click "find now"

5. The Virus has a Teddy Bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe DO NOT OPEN
IT!

6. Go to Edit (on the menu bar) and choose "select all" to highlight the
file without opening it.

7. Now go to File (on the menu bar) and select delete. It will then go to
the Recycle Bin.

8. IF YOU FIND THE VIRUS YOU MUST CONTACT ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR ADDRESS
BOOK, SO THEY CAN ERADICATE IT IN THEIR OWN ADDRESS BOOKS.

To Do This:

a) Open a new e-mail message

b) Click the icon of the address book next to the "TO"

c) Highlight every name and add to "BCC" (which means blind copy)

d) Copy this message and paste to e-mail


I have followed these direction sent by someone to me and was able to easily
delete the virus. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Just delete this email if you recieve it,

ITS NOT a virus but a windows file.


Its just a hoax

- and people will continue to delete poor old teddy, despite advice to the contrary, working on the principle that an (often anonymous) email is the gospel and any other advice is spurious.

We should start a SAVE TEDDY campaign.
