With my VISTA64 and IE7, WinFirewall, etc. I did have to put all operations in administrator mode, and turn off the WinFirewall and the 'user account control'. Another time I had problems with Sindows Defender kicking out a different 'registry mechanic' program I wanted to use to see what was going on in my registry due to problems with IE7 and something called 'demoshield' that comes with a lot of new games and programs.
Sorry I can't help more...I've been a MS user from the beginning, and usually had good luck. Within the past 2-3 years, though, it seems like I'm haveing to spend as much time massaging the MS software as I get to spend online. I have begun using backup files, though, so I won't lose much if I have to do a clean reinstall of some os, whether Sin or Linux or ????.
My problem is that I'm a user, not a computer whiz. Good Luck.
