    Changed from WiFi OTA internet to frontier and in the process while getting thunderbird set up with new address instead of just resetting old account I deleted it and started new one.

    Well got it done and then realized I had wiped all my folders out. This is my backup PC so I had same setup on main PC but I cannot get into the backup PC to place main PC thunderbird's profile. I go to users and click on AppData and get the no access window.

    So you were trying to access the profile files, through the file system. probably the easiest way is to use TakeOwnership to change the permissions on the folder. Have you installed TakeOwnership before?

    Don't have a clue, never even heard of it.

    Is this an easy program that "the bulb" can handle.

    Download it and execute it - it's a set of registry settings, just click it, confirm you want to add them and it will be done. It will add a Take Ownership link to the menu that shows a Take Ownership option when you right click a file or folder. So open Windows Explorer, right click the problem folder and choose Take Ownership.

    Use this just for this situation. You should be the owner of that folder, anyway, so there is no harm in taking ownership of it.
