some knuckle head from my wifes school just sent her an e-mail and said to look for this virus on one of our PC's on our network.He said he received it and it sent out through his address book.Naturally it's on my pc,but it looks like a hoax.It was created same day as alert e-mail came ,norton doesn't pick it up .Also in its properties it is a microsoft exe. file .Says it is a microsoft debugger registration for Java.Just wanted to make a post to see if anybody else heard of this before I go crazy trying to get rid off this.

Hi vinnyo123

Your correct in your assumption that it is a hoax, I received an e-mail last year about the same thing. It won't do you any harm if you have deleted it but it isn't necessary. Many people seem to have been caught out by deleting the file on the assumption it is better to be safe than sorry.
