@BlackDogWhite - Calibre has three 'parts',

The Software which is normally installed in a directory named Calibre2 -- 64 bit will be in Programs Files, 32 bit wiil be in Programs Files(X86). When you update or uninstall this is gets updated or removed

The Configuration data which contains preferences, plugins, customisations etc -- on Windows its default location is %appdata%\calibre, it can be opened via Preferences->Miscellaneous->Open calibre configuration directory. It is not removed by an uninstall (the assumption being that you might reinstall) - but it is sometimes updated by a calibre update.

The Libraries or Libraries, which are wherever you put them, they are not touched by updates or uninstall.

You could try deleting the Configuration folder, when calibre is not running.

Calibre will create a fresh one when you restart it. I suggest you backup the %appdata%/calibre folder first, either by moving it elsewhere, or zipping it before deleting it.

You may have to 'reconnect' your libraries using the Library->Switch/create library->Use the previously existing library at the new location option.

You will have to reinstall and reconfigure any plugins.

If nuking the configuration data doesn't resolve the problem, close calibre, delete it and reinstate the backup.

Added - %appdata% is shorthand for c:\users\<BlackDogWhite>\appdata\roaming - unless you messed with Windows

I just saw your conversation with davidfor, in Count Pages. Should have looked there first

Count pages stores some of its config data in the Configuration data, and some in the Library. Have you tried using the Library Maintenance->Library Check or Restore database tools?
