I would suggest: 1) upgrading 1.1.14 to 1.1.17 (*make a backup of your
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mozilla\ first*),
2) uninstall 2.0a1 (it's from Sept 2008), and install 2.0b1 instead

But it looks like I'd be wrong (sorry I'm more familiar with linux
except for testing w/Windows), as it appears that 2.0ax overwrote your
1.1.14 according to:
Please note that installing SeaMonkey 2 will overwrite your existing
installation of SeaMonkey. You won't lose any of your bookmarks,
browsing history or mail and news messages, but some of your extensions
and other add-ons might not work until updates for them are made available.

This is why I *always* install a test/alpha/beta/et al to a separate
location & don't know why 2.0 doesn't do this as default as well. I
though that previously it did.

So, check first to see if you still have any <somenumber>.slt files on
your system in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Mozilla\ & report back.
