    Thunderbird Install Hangs at "Create Shortcut"


    I am trying to install Thunderbird on a brand-new HP Envy laptop with Win 8.1. It gets to the "Create Shortcut [folder destination]" stage and hangs. I have rebooted my laptop and re-downloaded the Thunderbird install file, in case the first download contained some errors.

    I am running Bitdefender Total Security 2014.

    Any ideas?

    Or if this can't be solved, does anyone know how to import my Thunderbird email history into Outlook?
