However, I do know how to solve this! =)  All you have to do is go to the
properties of the "pvengine.exe" and under the compatibility tab you must
checkmark "Disable visual themes".  This hopefully helps.  Let me know if it
doesn't and maybe I can help further.  (I'm becoming fairly proficient with
fixing Vista compatability because of all the practice I get from using so many
"apparently" incompatable programs)
