    The message telling you to delete the file jdbgmgr.exe is a hoax. Don't delete it --although it's apparently not too bad if you do. See, for example, the Symantec site:

    where they say,

    Symantec Security Response encourages you to ignore any messages regarding this hoax. It is harmless and is intended only to cause unwarranted concern. . . .

    This is a hoax that, like the SULFNBK.EXE Warning hoax, tries to persuade you to delete a legitimate Windows file from your computer. The file that the hoax refers to, Jdbgmgr.exe, is the Microsoft Debugger Registrar for Java. It may be installed when you install Windows.
