    My wife,s computer is an HP desktop with all the bells and whistles running Windows 7. She contracted a nasty virus and I had to do a complete system reinstall. Carbonite was our backup provider. I am trying to integrate these files into the reintalled Mozilla Thunderbird. How do I do this? Thanks

    I moved Thunderbird and all its files and settings from one machine to another not too long ago. You need to install the same version of Thunderbird on the new machine and then copy its profile folders from the AppDate directory in your user profile (while Thunderbird is not running, of course).
