David and Hawk135,
I had the same problem, but after a lot of searching I got a fix. First, you need to check out Some Windows Vista functions may not work, or Windows Vista may stop responding
. After following those steps I found that the nsisvc.dll file was corrupt. I then followed the steps at the bottom of the article quoted above and replaced the file from another Vista machine I have. If you don't have another Vista machine, look for the dll on the recovery disk from a friend. After replacing the file I got connected.
