If the default installation folder for WiSP is under C:\Program Files, 
that's likely your problem.  Windows 7 User Account Controls limits certain 
write activities to sub-folders under the Program Files folder.  Try 
uninstalling it, then re-install but DON'T accept the default installation 
directory.  I set up a Ham Stuff folder in the root directory that I install 
everything to, and have not run into any problems.

Or turn off UAC.
