I received this email from another list as you can see.  I checked my C drive 
for this file [ jdbgmgr.exe ] and it is there - since 6 of 2000.  Is this a 
file that we should delete?  I ask because there are times when people are told 
to delete files when they shouldn't

Subject: [Stadium Postcard Collectors] VIRUS ALERT!

A virus has been passed on to me by a contact. My address book has in 
turn been infected. Since you are in my address book there may be a 
chance that you will find it in your computer too. I followed the 
instructions below and eradicated the virus easily. The virus (called 
jdbgmgr.exe)is not detected by Norton or MacAfee anti-virus-system. 
This virus sits quietly for 14 days before damaging the system. It is 
sent automatically by messenger and by the address book, whether or 
not you send emails to your contacts. Here's how to check the virus 
and get rid of it: 

1. Go to start, then go up to the find or search -option
2. In the file/folders option, type the name: jdbgmgr.exe
3. Be sure you search your C-drive and all the sub-folders and any 
other drives you may have.(Click on the box to include subfolders.)
4. Click: "Find now"
5. The virus has a grey teddy bear icon with the name
6. Go to Edit (on the menu bar) and choose "select all" to highlight 
the file without opening it.
7. Now go to File (on the menu bar) and select DELETE. It will then 
go to the Recycle Bin.
8. Go to the recycle Bin and delete it there as well.
IF YOU FIND THE VIRUS, you must contact all the people in your 
address book, so they can eradicate it in their own address books. 
To do this:
1. Open a new email message
2. Click the icon of the address book next to the "to"
3. Highlight every name and add to "BCC"
4. Copy this message, enter subject and paste to email, and send
