Portable Thunderbird no longer starts Windows 10

My computer restarted sometime overnight. Today I tried to open thunderbird and all i get is splash screen. It seems to shutdown by itself.
I then decided to delete the entire thunderbird folder and install it to desktop and try to start it up. Same behavior.

I then noticed transmission Qt Client starts but than says "transmission Qt Client has stopped working" I select close program and restart and same error. I too unzipped transmission to desktop like thunderbird and same error.

How to fix this? I already under C folder use disk cleanup and cleared everything. Doesn't seem to do anything.

Anyone have any idea? driving me crazy.

Temporary fix

I only posted on support thunderbird forum because I thought it might be in the wrong forum so there was no responses... Still experiencing this issue. I tried deleting files listed for the normal thunderbird when it does not start; like the lock file but the user/local user/roaming has no files listed that should prevent startup.

I couldn't wait any longer as I have alot of email accounts so I looked for older versions particular the thunderbird ESR 17.0.11 english. Deleted the profile folder; than moved the backup profile folder I had and it starts up right away but disables most of the plugins and I have to enter passwords all over again. The ones that didn't work are 52.2.1 and 52.2.0. Hope this helps someone who has a similar problem till there is some resolution to why it just won't startup.
