Gerry - here are some things to try:
- Turn off any drive indexing (google or MS)
- Turn off Anti-Virus software
- Make sure you are saving the file to a local drive that you have write AND create access to.
If none of of these make a difference, PM me and we will hook-up a debugger to it and find out what's going on.
Wanted to update this thread with some back-channel communications I have had with Gerry...
After a re-install from fresh install binaries, turning off indexing and anti-virus services, all is good.
