You guys are fan-freaking-tastic.

Man, looking back at it all, I wonder what the overall problem was here. Definitely seemed like Windows 7 went sideways with the permissions.
Glad that you got it working. Thank You for Posting Back
Yes Windows Vista as well as Windows 7 has lot of permission issue i guess it might be because of UAC maybe not i'm not sure. But most of the times in my experience Build-in admin used to do the trick.

Hope this helps,

I hope a Service Pack addresses these issues. Permissions are a core aspect of file management in an OS, and for them to be the least bit flaky might mean I'll be putting up with more of these issues! Ugh.

Anyways, I got my ESET login info updated, and it's downloading virus definition updates. Looks like I'm up n' rolling again!
