Are you running an antivirus? If so, which one?

using MCafee for anti virus and installed in c:\vspMgr   (now that I uninstalled and directed it to that directory).It was installed in a different directory. at the first installation.

     One of the things I have learned is that for installing a lot of the software items I use, and especially anything Flex, which install LOTS of drivers for different purposes, is to disable, at least temporarily, the "engines". For example, I use Avast and get frustrated at what it does sometimes so I disable the "shields" until I have  them up and running which usually means I disable them until I reboot the machine. By doing that, I seem to avoid a lot of the trips and stumbles that abound with such installs.
    Ohh, and it helps to try and make sure that the initial install goes to the correct directories so it is less likely to have the pitfalls of the dreaded "Windows unsigned drivers" Bull S#%@ prop up. Sometimes you can get away with it and other times you won't, and disabling the UAC doesn't always work either.
