Before Lars' advice I ran into the same problem that now you are
experiencing. Later on (I am too busy at the moment), I will tell you,

Scott,

Have you already rebooted your computer? Do not reboot it if you have not.

Paul

Yup, I did. I might just reinstall...as I've not done anything yet to it cept set up the network...
