    -AVG antivirus updated and running

    Thunderbird is running with a gmail account. The gmail web-page shows we've got say 10 unread emails. Go to update in Thunderbird and nothing appears except new emails from what looks to be a spam holiday offer or something. They land in the inbox every few minutes and they actually aren't even in the gmail account at all. So somewhere between gmail and Thunderbird a spam email is inserting itself and blocking the real emails from coming through.

    It has been working fine for years and only recently the problem has surfaced. Anyone ever heard of such a virus/spyware?

    may I be the first to say it, Windows XP is about to become an unsupported OS.

    migrate now.
