Warning, the NIMDA computer virus is back again. Don't open any unfamiliar attachments or odd attachments in your email.

Just thought you should all know, networks usually get really clogged up with this stuff.

how do you detect it on your computer? Will Norton Anti-virus detect it?
Update your Virus Definitions, this one is hitting hard. Which is good for me, I'm a freelance-tech, so maybe i'll get some money out of this :)

New Virus

We had this virus.. check for asap

You might have it too since you are in my address book

PLEASE CHECK THE FOLLOWING AT ONCE!

I have been informed that a new virus is currently being spread by
e-mails
but it is easy to eliminate if you follow these instructions:

You must check to see whether your computer has been infected by a
virus
called jdbgmgr.exe
This hidden virus lurks in your address book and automatically forwards
itself and is then transmitted to all the contacts on your list

The virus cannot be detected by McAfee or Norton and it lies dormant
for 14
days before becoming active and causing damage within your computer
system.
However, it can easily be removed from your PC before it has time to
wipe
out your addresses and/or computer files(archive)

To detect and get rid of the virus do the following:

1. Click on the START menu at the bottom left hand corner of your
screen.

2. Click on FIND, choose "Files or Folders..." and write the name of
the
virus: jdbgmgr.exe

3. Choose for the search to be carried out in unit (C:)

4. Click on SEARCH NOW or FIND

5. If the virus appears (the icon is a small grey teddy bear), with
the
name jdbgmgr.exe DO NOT OPEN IT!

6. RIGHT click on the icon (using the RIGHT BUTTON of your mouse) and
choose the option DELETE, which will bin the program

7. Open the bin and empty it

IF YOU HAVE FOUND THIS VIRUS IN YOUR COMPUTER FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO
ALL
THE PEOPLE ON YOUR E-MAIL CONTACT LIST BEFORE THE VIRUS HAS TIME TO
BECOME
ACTIVE AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO THEIR COMPUTER.

LIKE WHOA!

I had it too. I thank you for informing me about this. I have had two viruses in the past year and this would have taken the case. I'm about to send your post message to all in my address book. Holla!

Vmyths.com says it's a hoax unless emailed

I found the following on Vmyths.com:

A hysterical urban legend -- nearly identical to the sulfnbk.exe mass hysteria of 2001. The JDBGMGR.EXE file is a legit Windows operating system file, just like sulfnbk.exe. Some rules of thumb: JDBGMGR.EXE is a legit Windows operating system file, just like SULFNBK.EXE. Well-meaning users fall prey to False Authority Syndrome when they use their eyeballs to "detect" viruses.

if you merely find JDBGMGR.EXE on your computer, then it's probably not infected; but
if you receive JDBGMGR.EXE as an email attachment, then it probably is infected.

Ok,

What is the deal? Do I delete it or do I leave it? My computer has been f**ked up 3 times!!!!! (excuse the potty mouth, this is driving me crazy)

I am ready to throw my computer out the window. I don't keep an address book on my computer. That is for various reasons. I keep everything in my Palm Pilot.

jdbgmgr.exe is a java file part of Windows. *if* you believe you somehow got that exact file through email, then delete it. BUT do know that most Antivirus Programs should be able to detect most viruses unless it is very very new.

What kind of computer problems are you getting?

You name it, it's happened

I've clicked on one program and another would open. Or, I would open a program and 5 or 6 would open as well.

My computer shuts down in the middle of me doing things

I restarted it last week and it would not go past the WINDOWS 98 screen.

I've sat up on the phone with tech support until Dracula knocked on the door to come in for bed.

It's horrible. COMPAQ PRESARIO 7360!!!!!!!!!!!!

:mad:

Curious:confused:

Hey Leon, don't be sorry, it's the thought that counts :) If anyone deleted that file and needs it back, i'll be more than glad to send out the one i have. I run Windows XP if that counts for anything.
