Good luck.

Looks like "taskkill" may be a viable option.....

Thanks!

For the really lazy among us, does that Firefox page discuss Thunderbird 
(what was asked about) too?

If you need to kill Thunderbird only occasionally:

1.  Right-click on the task bar at the bottom of your monitor window
away from any task buttons or the notification area (tray).

2.  From the pop-up context menu, select Start Task Manager.

3.  On the Prcesses tab, select the header button Image Name to
alphabetize the processes.

4.  Scroll down to thunderbird.exe and select it.

5.  Select the End Process button in the lower-right corner of the
Windows Task Manager window.

6.  Exit the Windows Task Manager window by selecting the X in the
upper-right corner.

If you need to kill Thunderbird frequently:

1.  Open Notepad to create a new text file.

2.  Insert the following line in the new file:
	C:\Windows\System32\taskkill.exe /IM thunderbird.exe

3.  Save the file on your C-drive as
	Kill_TBird.bat

4.  Copy Kill_TBird.bat and paste it as a shortcut on your desktop, in
your Start menu, or in a Windows tool bar.

Consider:
*  Most state mandate that drivers have liability insurance.
*  Employers are mandated to have worker's compensation insurance.
*  If you live in a flood zone, flood insurance is mandatory.
*  If your home has a mortgage, fire insurance is mandatory.

Why then is mandatory health insurance so bad??

Tried the taskkill command and substituting thunderbird.exe (taskkill 
/im thunderbird.exe) works!

Not frequently, but once a day as part of a daily backup I am putting 
together. Was able to determine that "taskkill" was my friend.
Thank you for your response and verification that my choice was correct.
