I've uninstalled Firebird and completely deleted the Firebird folder.
I then re-installed Firebird, stopped the service, and restored the
conf files and the security.fdb from backup. I then restarted the
service and still get the error. When I try to open a database in
IBExpert or any of my programs, I get an error "Unsuccessful execution
caused by an unavailable resource. unavailable database."

Note that this is a system where Firebird has been working flawlessly
for more than a year. The only thing I did to cause this was to
uninstall Firebird and try to install a newer version. Now, I can't
even get the original version to work.

What should I look for?
