I have received an email (sent to hundreds of people) telling me the above file on my hard drive (in Windows) is a virus and that I should delete it.

This sounds like an elaborate hoax to get users to delete a system file.

anybody know if it is or not?

Its a hoax - search this site, search google, ask next doors cat and they all tell you the same. Keep the file on your PC its part of Windows.

Its a hoax.....leave it.

There is a virus hoax that advises customers to delete a valid Windows file that is named Jdbgmgr.exe. This file is the Microsoft Debugger Registrar for Java. If you receive the e-mail message that is listed in the "More Information" section of this article, delete the e-mail message and do not forward it to others.

Many thanks for the reassurance, I thought it must be as I have a copy of windows system on my D drive as well, and the file is on that too.

Thanks very much.
