A Longstanding Complaint About Windows Was How Insecure It Was

 They now seem to have made it too secure.  I want to copy my Thunderbird profile from old laptop to new because I cannot seem to configure Thunderbird on the new one.  (Yeah, everyone should use gmaiL hotmail, or FacePlant.)  But while I can see the profile on my old PC, I cannot open the ApplicationData folder, even as admin.  I could spend the next several hours trying to figure out what I have misconfigured in Thunderbird, but it should not be this hard to see a file on my own PC.
