just had e-mail from pal to say his address book has been infected with a virus named jdbgmgr.exe on serching through files it was there with the icon of a teddy bear i have deleted it without open it will i have to e-mail all pepole in my address book to look out for it. he also says that norton or mcAfee cant detect it'
As it looks like you have deleted the Bear as the Microsoft article says: 'NOTE: If you have already deleted the Jdbgmgr.exe file, in most cases, you do not need to re-install it'. So don't panic your system will be ok, but in future delete such junk straight away as there are many other mails floting around telling you do do harmful things. If in doubt check on here first or on the Symantec site.
Thanks for replys, I have deleted the file, computer is still working but what will i have to watch out for as to what this file is used for in the futher. have not sent e-mails to any one in my address book so that is one problem less.
"The following quote is extracted from the Microsoft Knowledge Base article, "Virus Hoax: Microsoft Debugger Registrar for Java (Jdbgmgr.exe) Is Not a Virus (Q322993)."
"The Microsoft Debugger Registrar for Java (Jdbgmgr.exe) is only used by Microsoft Visual J++ 1.1 developers.
If you follow the e-mail message instructions and delete this file, you do not have to recover it unless you use Microsoft Visual J++ 1.1 to develop Java programs on Windows XP, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 98, or Windows 95."
So unless you write software programs, I shouldn't worry about it.
