I bet it's a vista problem. I've heard of this before on vista running

Hey guys,
    I just got HD for the home box.  It is so nice to not have to spend
all day at school using the licenses there on older out of date
machines.  I'll have to be careful about what I open where so as not to
accidentally convert hip to hipnc, but that is a small price to pay for
being able to work in the confines of your own space with a couple of
cold ones and the music of your choice on the stereo.  Here is where I
am running into a snag.  Mantra seems to be unstable.  I get a windows
warning saying Mantra has shut down.  If I freshly have open up the
file, I might get 3-4 frames before this happens.  After that, I am
lucky if I get one.  Aside from being a lot beastier, the only
differences between my box and those at school, is that they are running
a full license and Windows XP and I am running HD on Vista.  Any
suggestions?  I will be passing this on to tech support too, but as it
is the weekend, I thought y'all might come up with something quicker.
