    Reverting to XP sounds better every day.
    Just out of curiosity, Were there any differences between the two installs on each machine, perhaps you used a different account to initiate the install on one machine as opposed to the other?

    Do both accounts that are logged in each computer while the error pops up have the same rights?

    I'm thinking if they are asking you to turn off UAC on one box and it's workign fine on the other could be some correlation between account rights etc...

    Have you re-installed it as Admin or with Run As admin?

    I'm actually using Vista as my main work pc. Although i still need to run an XP OS in my vmware to have VPN connectivity.

    Please keep the BS in the BS forum. We like to think of this as a technical resource - not a playpen.
