This is a hoax. Jdbgmgr.exe belongs on your system.
Cheers,

> 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

> 7) Go back to the menu bar and click on File; then click Delete.
