You have applications running in the background. Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and End Task on all but explorer and try it again. Or just boot into Safe Mode and run it from there. (Reboot and hit F8 just after your drives are detected to choose Safe Mode from Startup list.)

You have something running in the background... easiest way to eliminate this is to click on Alt-Ctrl-Del....take out things you don't need one at a time... all you need to leave is Explorer & systray. Then also see if you have a screen saver set to come on.Disable it if you do.

Savvy :)

I WON! :D Just kidding!
Seems that someone usually beats ME to the punch!

twotymer05 messaged me to say it still didn't work with everything but Explorer closed so will let us know if it works in Safe Mode.
