Here you are Les, it was covered a short while ago

The problem is these days there are that many viruses kicking about that it is hard to distinguish what is and what isn't a hoax. Some 'people' seem to get kicks out of exploiting others fears of virus attacks by sending out mass mails regarding 'Watch out for this one...'

If you receive an email with a warning of a file/virus and you are not sure search for the file and if you find it rename it by adding a 1 at the end of it's name.
If it turns out to be a hoax, just rename it back, it's alot easier than trying to reinstall it.

Hi Les,

If you have deleted JDBGMGR.EXE from your system, it can be restored by installing updated version of Microsft Virtual Machine or Internet Explorer.
What version of Internet Explorer are you running? If you want a link to IE6.0 go to the Freebies section of the forum and there is one in there.

Regards, Dave

Ah ha, even better.

Internet Explorer 6.0 was built to run with XP so if you download the latest version http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp then it should solve your problem,
