i downloaded windbg, but i don't know how to use it. instructions for how to use it with claws somewhere?

good times didn't last. now claws sometimes crashes after having fetched mail and then won't let me touch the affected (by what?) mailboxes. for a while deleting the cache fixed it. today i could touch no mailbox other then the default ones (in, sent and so on). by accident i discovered that marking all posts in each mailbox as read now fixes the problem. most often everything is ok until claws is closed again. At least i think so, the mess usually starts after rebooting the machine and then i keep claws open and my fingers crossed. At one occasion claws also recreated some newly deleted posts.

clearly this isn't working. should i reinstall? try an older version, considering i'm on xp and can't do anything about that atm? if i take that route, can i just let the mail folder be where it is (default location) and claws will see it? should i leave or delete the 'special' files in each folder (.claws_cache, .claws_mark, .mh_sequences)?

please help!
