Help: Vista x64 won't allow admin login on 3.2 CE

I discovered Alfresco a few days ago and thought I'd give it a try.

On a Win XP Pro laptop, I was able to get it running within a few minutes. There were a few quirks that I'm still sorting through - but it went very well overall.

On my Vista (64 bit Home) laptop it was a different story. I've tried installing several times (including as the Administrator) without luck. The install completes, then I start Alfresco and wait a very long time (~5 minutes?) before I'm able to get the login page to function.

Once the login page does appear, I attempt to login as admin. However, it gives me the authentication / remote server error message.

Failed to Login
The remote server may be unavailable or your authentication details have not been recognized.

I'm trying the admin / admin password (as on the XP install) but it acts as if the password is bad. I'm sure the errors in the log are a clue.

Any help would be appreciated!

Here is the top of the alfresco log:
