Try running as an admin maybe? Strange though, I thought that Vista was the one that got really hissy about admin privileges.

IRRITATION!

Sometimes, FireFox REALLY annoys me for wiping what I have typed out.

You are being denied access to change to that directory. Check that it actually exists, if it does make sure that you have admin access by being on an admin account- I think this is the only way to get admin on XP (I don't know as I don't have it).

Also, have you tried the tutorial?

Nah that was me accidentally navigating backwards because of my laptop's trackpad. I really shouldn't have activated side-to-side scrolling...
