Running Windows 7; I'm not really sure what is going on. The wallet has stolen my BTC.
The wallet never synchronizes, it never finishes. If I leave it on all day -I will come home to see it crashed.
The application is also not visible from anywhere except possibly from Task Manager. When I try to start it.. it says:
cannot obtain a lock on data directory ... Bitcoin is probably already running.
My goal here is to get the bitcoins that I have and move them back to the account I have with the vendor. Then I will purge my system of this so called "program" and never use it again.
Additional information: Bitcoin Wallet version 0.5.0.1
This is old -can I upgrade without losing my secure key? WHERE IS MY WALLET.DAT FILE? I CAN'T FIND IT.
ANY HELP IS GOOD.
