Virus alert

I have been informed by an e-mail correspondent that they have a virus which is unable to be detected by Norton or McAfee and that due to correspondence the virus has been passed to my computer. However, they inform me it is easily removed and they explain that it is simply located by FIND/SEARCH, highlighted and deleted.
The file is jdbgmgr.exe and is located in C:\windows\system. When I carry out this action the file remains in the folder. Properties describe it as a microsoft executable file and should not be removed. Am I being hoaxed?
Please help.

Best regards

type 'hoax' into the search facility and you will find many discusions about jdbmgr.exe.
