Any e-mails you get from someone you don't know i would suggest that you don't open it. The damage done to your system can give you a real headache.

THE ANSWER GIVEN ABOVE WAS NOT SATISFACTORY. THE E-MAIL I RECIEVED WAS FROM SOMEONE I KNEW. I DON'T OPEN E-MAILS FROM PEOPLE I DON'T KNOW. SO, FOR THE SECOND TIME HAVE ANY OF YOU HEARD OF A VIRUS LABLED jdbg.exe OR IS IT JUST A HOAX?
