    Hi guys I use Mozilla Thunderbird for my emails and its been fine but just come back off holiday and went to check emails and it came up with this;

    Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

    The hard disk is new so not full, and I'm not sure what the rest means HELP??:cry: By the way my phone has downloaded all my emails no problem.

    Could be many things.

    Are you logged in to the computer with the same account which you always use to read your email?

    Have you used a programme recently to clean up old files or "streamline" or speed up your computer?

    Have you deleted anything from your C: ?

    Sounds like there is missing information which it expects to find in your profile. Not sure what, or how it could have gone missing.
