    Got an e-mail from a friend

    Did a search and found the file in these folder:
    C:\windows\system (win98)
    size 28kb
    D:\windows\system32 (xp)
    size 15kb, date created 12/12/2002
    D:\I386 (XP source with SP1)
    jdbgmgr.ex_
    size 8kb, date created 12/07/2002

    I would think this virus warning just a hoax, as 2 weeks has passed and nothing happened to my machine and that the compressed version (ex_)is in the xp source.

    I just rename the extension to txt . . just in case.

    Anybody knows what kind of program is this jdbgmgr.exe ??

    its called a hoax virus, that file is actually a java debugging tool. a quick google would have told you this instead of you being the cause of a fake virus outbreak. in reality emails like that do more damage than a real virus, so check b4 posting in future mate. there plenty out there willing to delete a critical system file because someone tells then too.

    you didnt delete it did u ?.. dont matter if you did as you never use the file in this instance

    Burpster, thanks.

    GonZ0, read my post . .
    I did suspect that this is a hoax and didn't send any e-mail to any other ppl in my contacts nor deleted any file. I posted so that members of this forum aware of it. Read before you write.

    This hoax goes around every couple of months. Here is a little tip. If there are lots of addresses in th eheaders of the email it it spam.
