It's a hoax...don't delete the file.  This one shows up from time to time...even tells you to look for a teddy bear icon, which you will find because it is a Windows system file.  

Don't delete the file....it is not a virus.

There are several places on the web that describe this hoax, but I don't have the address...maybe someone else does and can post it.

Again, it is a hoax...it is not a virus!!

I think it is a hoax and the file is a needed file for windows.

Go to [url]http://www.symantec.com[/url]

and search for it.

I don't know if Windows will even [i]let[/i] you delete this, will it?  And if you did, and were successful, how would you even get it back?  Maybe I'm wrong.?

The file jdbgmgr.exe is the Java Debugging Manager. Not important for Windows as such, but it's not a virus at all.
If you delete it, you can find it in of the CAB files on your Windows CD.

Crap, in a seach of our computer, we can't find it.  Maybe it got deleted somewhere along the line, as we've had a few viruses to deal with in the past.[:(]

Will have to search again and make sure I typed in the right file name.

Edited to say I must have typed in the wrong letters first time.  "Teddy Bear" file found.[:)]

Don't worry if you delete it, microsoft can't seem to get their java VM to work securely anyways so their always releasing updates to it.

If you keep up with critical updates, it will be re-installed within the nexdt month.

Unless your a java programmer, you don't need it anyways.
