I've tried renaming:

to:

C:\Documents and Settings\<your logon name>\Application Data\calibre.old

and it still wont start. Can anyone help me out?
Well, that test proved that there was not a corrupt calibre configuration.

Other possibilities (all with your laptop's configuration), Anti-virus/firewall blocking, not the official Calibre download, the PATH (variable) has a different Python before Calibre
here is mine (XP pro) for reference
Code:
PATH=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Support Tools\;C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static;C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0;C:\Program
Files\Calibre2\
