Has a virus slipped into the release code?
I just went through an update - actually TB said "the updated failed so will now do a full install", it downloaded and started and then PrevX popped up and said that mozcpp19.dll in the thunderbird folder is rootkit (it shows "Caution.Mismatchdata"


Reproducible: Always

Start TB

Expected Results:  
no virus...
No. I'll contact them.
Contacted them.
They'll be whitelisting the file. Brian can you double check if you still get the error say tomorrow (make sure prevx is updated).
No response -> INCOMPLETE.
