My copy of Thunderbird started acting strangely (asking for my password and then rejecting it when I tried to send mail). So I ran a virus scan with AVG (my XP system’s default) and found nothing. Adaware found nothing.
So I tried Kaspersky’s online service and it found Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Pif.ah in Thunderbird’s inbox. The problem – other than having this @#$% trojan in the first place – is that there is no information about this specific virus on the Net. So how do I get rid of the thing? Simply deleting things from my inbox – or even the inbox itself – won’t be enough, right?
