Well on windows this usually mean you don't have access right to TB installation folder.
Component: Preferences → Application Update
Product: Thunderbird → Toolkit
QA Contact: preferences → application.update
Chances are the file permissions on the installation are incorrect. to wrokaround this download the latest version of Thunderbird from http://getthunderbird.com/ . Uninstall Thunderbird while it isn't running by dragging it from the Applications directory to the trash and emptying the trash. Then install the version you just downloaded.
