That's from the vista install guide. Being the admin on a vista box still does not get you complete control and it drove me crazy so i disabled uac and defender not only in control panel but also the services themselves.
Thanks for your help, it worked. Took a bit of playing around (forgot to re-run install.bat, since I un-installed the SMP client), but the rig is back online.
