Hello yvang,

For Thunderbird address book, copy abook.mab from old computer C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\f9f1n842.default to new computer C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\il6yju6t.default. The directory names f9f1n842.default and il6yju6t.default will be different in your case.

You will need to unhide hidden folders and files in both cases.  In Windows XP, open Windows Explorer or any folder.  Click on Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  If you want to see system files as well, unclick Hide protected operating system files.   Click OK.

In Windows Vista, open Windows Explorer or any folder. Click the Layout button (to the left of the Views button). Click Folder Options > View tab. Check "Show hidden files and folders".   Click OK

Hope this helps!
