omg!!! ty corndog it worked the first time i tried it. i followed all you steps and it works perfectly. I am using Norton anti virus. to disable Norton, open up the virus console(try doing it on the admin user, if you cant, open it from the search menu on vista AS ADMIN.)
open the properties on access protection and unclick the [Prevent Mcafee from being disabled] then you close the virus console and right click the icon on the bottom and click disable on acces scan protection.
