I have seen this message before and believed it but it turned out to be a
hoax. The computer technician where I work says it comes round now and
again. I deleted and it is possible to lose some workings if you do I
believe. However, I suggest you check the hoax virus websites before you act
on this.

> Dear all:
>
> We have just reveived a new and devious virus from one of our South
> American correspondents, the Osito (Little Bear) Virus, that travels via
> e-mail address books; it lies dormant in the computers it accesses for
> two weeks, then activates. Neither Norton nor McAfee block it, nor does
> Postini at our local MCN server. You all need to take the following steps
> immediately:
>
> 1) Click on the Start button; then click Search.
>
> 2) Select Files and in the Name box write: jdbgmgr.exe.
>
> 3) Make sure you are in the C Drive.
>
> 4) Click the Search Now button.
>
> 5) If you have it, the virus will appear with a little Teddy Bear icon:
> jdbgmgr.exe. DON'T OPEN IT!
>
> 6) In the menu bar click Edit, then Select All; this will highlight the
> virus file; again, DO NOT OPEN IT.
>
> 7) Go back to the menu bar and click on File; then click Delete.
>
> 8) Go to the Recycle Bin and empty it without opening the virus file.
>
> That should take care of it. If you do find this virus on our machine,
> then you need to inform everyone in your address books. To do so, open a
> new e-mail message window and click on the TO: icon, which will take you
> to your Address Book; highlight every address in your book and place it
> in the BCC (Blind Copies) box. Copy this message, fill in the Subject
> box, and send it. This last step is important, both to keep your regular
> correspondents from being infected and to keep your own machines from
> being reinfected.

> Sorry for the hassle! It's just part of our virtual world.
