I just found out I received a virus that automatically is passed
through email address books.  Since you are in my address book, you will
probably find it in your computer, too.  The virus (called jdbg.exe)
is not detected by Norton or McAfree Anti-virus systems.  The virus sits
quietly for 14 days before damaging the system.  It is sent automatically
by messenger and by address book, whether or not you sent e-mail to
your contacts.

Here is how to check for the virus and how to get rid of it.

Please do this ASAP:-

Go to Start, then click your Find or Search option In the folder option,
type the name..jdbgm Be sure to search your C Drive and all the sub
folders and any other drives you may have Click 'Find Now' The virus
has a teddy bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe. Do not open it!!!!
Go ! to Edit (on the menu bar) and choose 'Select All' to highlight the
file without opening it Now go to File (on the menu bar) and select
delete. It will then go to the recycle bin.  If you find the virus,
you must contact all the people in your address book so that they may
eradicate the virus from their own address books.

To do this:

1.                   Open a new e-mail message

2.                   Click the icon Address Book or Contacts next to 'TO'

3.                   Highlight every name and add to 'BCC'

4.                   Copy and Paste this message and clic! k 'send'
