Problem with Bugbear virus I think

Just received an e-mail from a relative telling me she has the Bugbear virus and as it spreads from the address book I should delete a file jbdgmgr.exe. I have heard of viruses that want you to delete important files, though this sounds real as I've since talked to her on the phone. I have found said file but what if she has been deceived? I have removed passwords (stored on floppy) and keep no credit card info on my PC. Is this for real? Could really do with some advice.
Cheers Mark

I was very tempted to post in Anglo Saxon but I don't want to be removed.

I do not believe it (VM) - there are more posts on this than tea in China (the country) !!!

That FAQ section that was talked about the other day should have this at no.1
