Help?

SCANNERS!
I get a prompt to update my version of Thunderbird, so I go ahead - like normal - like I've done ten times before in the years I've used this email client. Only something is wrong.

Now it autoruns the update/failure in a loop, ad infinitum, and the program will not open at all. I have to kill the process with the Task Manager to make it stop. If I uninstall and reinstall, I lose all of my saved mail as well as my address book. Which would not be a good thing.

The problem is there is a .dll file that will not delete from the directory no matter what I do, and I'm unsure how to disable my Norton Internet Security antivirus program to boot.

Options? Suggestions?


Thanks, guys - I think I've got it now!

Can you delete it after rebooting?

Will try it - am getting quite pissed off and am willing to try about anything to salvage what is salvageable.

Will not delete, reboot be damned.

Try renaming it?

Tried that too, to no avail - it's a stubborn sumbitch.

Hit F8 at boot and go into Safe Mode?

I got it to delete the directory after taking the file out, then got the program to restart finally - exported my stuff, backed up the address book, and not I'm gonna uninstall/reinstall and update the profile.

Moving it to a dead folder?
