A co-worker is using Thunderbird (he won't upgrade to 3 because it says some of his add-ons won't work). A few weeks ago, he installed Spamfighter on his PC, and since then Thunderbird won't completely shut down when he shuts down his computer. He gets the Window saying Thunderbird.exe is not responding, End Now/Cancel. He clicks on the End Now button and the Window closes, but Windows still won't shut down. He has to do this at least twice before (maybe) the PC shuts down, but usually he has to bring up Program Manager and stop the process, then click on Start--Shut Down again. Could there be some conflict between Thunderbird and Spamfighter? Thanks for any help!

There could be a conflict because Thunderbird has its own very effective antispam engine. He could check the settings to see if antispam is disabled in Thunderbird. I liked Tbird 2 better as well, but he would be wise to update.

Indeed, Thunderbird has a really good spamfilter, therefore you shouldn't need a different one... try uninstalling that, unless he "absolutely needs it." If that doesn't work... it's a Thunderbird problem, and you might have to reinstall it. :thumbsup:

Hope this helps!
