Here is part of the message… It looked real to me, but a friend warned me.
My friend Bill Burkett just contacted me to inform me that since I was in his address book, I probably had received a virus not detectable by Norton or McAfee.
Since my address book was infected, yours may also be, because your address was listed within messages sent or my address book.
The virus is called JDBGMGR.EXE and is not detected by Norton or McAfee anti-virus programs. It 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 e mails.
I am very sorry about the fact that I may have been a pass through for this virus.
The good news is that is really easy to cleanse from your system.
Instructions follow: (You may want to print these instructions before continuing)
1. Go to "start" button in lower left corner of your window. Click on "start and then move your cursor to "find" or "search".
2. Click on "find" or "Search" and move to "files or folders" and click on "files or folders" icon.
3. A new window will open. Type in the top space the name "JDBGMGR.EXE". Move your cursor to the bottom white space and make sure it is set to search your "C" drive (or whatever drive your main drive designation is).
