I have just discovered that I have received A VIRUS THAT AUTOMATICALLY IS PASSED THROUGH E-MAIL ADDRESS BOOKS. Since you are in my address book you will probably find it in your computer too. The virus (Called jdbg.exe) is not detected by Norton or McAfee systems. The system sits quietly for 14 days before damaging the system. It is sent automatically by messenger and by address book, whether or not you sent e-mail to your contacts. Here is how to check for the virus and how to remove it. PLEASE DO THIS RIGHT AWAY Go to Start, then click your find or search option In the folder option, type the name jdbgm Be sure to search your C drive and system folders and any other drives you may have Click find now The virus has a teddy bear icon with the name jdgmgr.exe. DO NOT OPEN IT Go to edit and select all to highlight the file without opening it Now go to File (on the menu bar) and select delete. It will then go to your recycle bin If you find the virus I am afraid you must contact all the people in your address book so that they may eradicate the virus as well To do this Open a new e-mail Click the icon address book Highlight every name and add to BCC Copy this message and paste
