User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.9) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/2.0.0.9
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.9) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/2.0.0.9

With today's (11-5-07) Firefox update, Spy Doctor blocks Firefox.exe and identifies  it as a Mundo Trojan virus with elevated risk. I have notified Spy Doctor. Firefox does eventually open but with a lot of grinding.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox-that's all it takes. If you have Spy Doctor it will block it.
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Spy Doctor notifies me that it has blocked Firefox.exe as a Trojan Mundo virus (I don't have a clue what that means). Computer grinds and chugs and after about 2 minutes, Firefox opens anyway.

Expected Results:  
Firefox is probably fine. There is some kind of conflict in this latest Firefox update with Spy Doctor.

This started today. All has worked fine until now.
basil, who usually helps us sort out these AV issues?

PC Tools/Spy Doctor is not usually on our keep-updated list. Adding Beltzner to investigate if we want to help keep them up to date. I've noticed that Kaspersky is also not currently on our list.
