personal addresses have been deleted from address book

Posted

Hi have already posted question but it seems to have disappeared. Thunderbird was not responding a while ago so I uninstalled then reinstalled did not use address book for quite a while, come to it today to find all contacts have been lost. Is there any way of getting them back easily. I am not very good with computer do not know how to search for file and wouldn't know what to do with them if I found them. Any help greatly appreciated, Thanks
