    Basically it says, you probably don't need that file.

    Hi Billy,

    I'm not sure what you mean.
    Nobody has to remove jdbgmgr.exe, but the people that did should read this:

    http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_99436.htm

    On that page are also instructions for retrieving the file.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi Billy: I take it you are using WindowsXP... then you can restore the file using System Restore by simply restoring your computer to a date prior to the deletion of the file and it's all back as before. :)
