I am having problems with Windows Media Player and have tried all suggested options to sort it out. It was installed on my laptop when I bought it in Sept 2012 and is now causing problems that I can't resolve. In checking the player defaults and troubleshooting I discovered that the fie was created oin 21 Jan 2013, the same date I downloaded Real Player. This should have been Sept 2012 when I bought the computer. Has Real Player caused a conflict? = I don't know.
I now see no way out except restoring Windows 7 from the recovery disks made when I bought the computer or maybe downloading a new version of Win Media Player .
If I do a restore then I will lose my Thunderbird emails and my Bookmarks on Firefox - I would like to avoid this, if possible. Please let me know how and from where I can copy these and how I can upload/ recopy them when I am up and running with my reinstalled Windows 7.

hello, please refer to Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles. the same information also applies to thunderbird, which profile usually resides in %appdata%\Thunderbird\Profiles.
Thanks for your reply. I now know how to copy my Firefox profile.
If I do the same with Thnderbird (enter %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Thunderbird\Profiles in the start box) will that also copy my email messages? I have saved some important messages in my folders which I would like to recover.
