Virus? - Windows Setup, Administration & Security

I was informed of the presence of a virus in a persons address book. It was identidied as jdbgmgr.exe and I was told to search for it and delete it and then send the instructions to all of my address book. The program is identified, on my computer, as a microsoft originated program for registering Java debuggers. Is it a virus or is my instruction a virus....

    Jack;
    ***There are two variants of this, one is not a hoax***

    If you received the message to delete the teddy bear icon:
    Antivirus do not detect it because it is a hoax.
    Whenever you get an E-Mail like that, check this link, near the bottom
    in Reference Area, click on Hoaxes:
    [url]http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/[/url]

    For Windows XP:
    Go to this link, line 184 "Restore jdbgmgr.exe - Virus Hoax" to
    replace jdbgmgr.exe:
    [url]http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm[/url]
    Place it in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 directory.

    For Windows 98/98SE:
    Insert the Windows 98 CD.
    Close any box that opens.
    Start/Run
    Type "SFC", press Enter.
    Place bullet in "Extract..."
    Type "jdbgmgr.exe" in the "Specify... box
    Restore from "*:\WIN98" (*=CD Drive)
    Save file in "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM"

    There is also a Trojan called "jasmin".
    The trojan takes advantage of this well known hoax
    The Teddy bear icon is correct, the driver is the virus file.
    See these links for more details:
    [url]http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/dasmin.shtml[/url]
    [url]http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/recory.shtml[/url]

    It is VERY IMPORTANT to run an updated virus scan once this issue is
    resolved to ensure your computer is virus free.
    Also run an updated virus scan at least weekly to reduce your chances
    of getting a virus to near zero.
    Forward these links to your friends that may have the same issue.

    Default Virus?

    When I am on line, all of a sudden screens that say
    Action Cancelled pop all over the screen. It doesn't stop
    until I shut down.
    Any ideas what this is?

    No, it's not a virus. Let me guess -- do you have Office 2000 or Office XP
    installed? If so, the "ghost typing" is a known issue that is fixed by
    disabling the speech recognition tool of Office.
