Vista won't start my portable Thunderbird

I am travelling and my Cruzer Thunderbird has worked perfectly many times in internet cafés. Then I bought a notebook with Vista loaded and, when I tried to run Thunderbird from my Cruzer, it told me;

"Thunderbird cannot be started. You may wish to re-install it to fix this issue. (Error: The program could not be found: /Thunderbird/Thunderbird.exe".

So I reinstalled Thunderbird into my Cruzer via the notebook but still got the same error. Furthermore, when I now plug the Cruzer into another PC, Thunderbird comes up locked at Local Folders, with no other folders showing, and does not download any mail.
The notebook runs Thunderbird without any problem but not through the Cruzer.
Can anyone identify what has gone wrong?
Thanks

Hi Jadehorse,
I think I^ve solved the problem. I reinstalled TB from the U3 Central and got version 1.5.0.42 but I've now gone to the Sandisk U3 site(also available in the 'add programs' menu in the Cruzer) and got version 2.0.0.4 which is working perfectly.
As for your files, look in the Cruzer under System/Apps, then find which is the app for TB, then /Data/Profile/Mail/Local Folders and you should find all your mail foléders - those without an msf extension. You can then save these files elsewhere and put them back when you've reinstalled TB.
Hope it works for you.
Eric
