This is some kind of problem with the user access control. I could fix it by disabling it. Here's how to disable it..
Here’s the step to disable and turn off UAC (User Access Control) feature for the logged on user account in Windows Vista (there are plenty more ways to disable UAC):
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In “Control Panel”, click User Accounts and Family Safety.
  3. In the “User Accounts and Family Safety” window, click User Accounts.
  4. In the “Make changes to your user account” tasks window, click Turn User Account Control on or off.
  5. If UAC is currently configured in Admin Approval Mode, the User Account Control message appears. Click Continue.
  6. Clear the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box, and then click OK.
  7. Click Restart now to apply the change immediately, or click Restart Later to close the User Accounts tasks window. Note that you must reboot the system to make the change effective.
Let me know if it worked!
