So I got into developing a vista sidebar gadget and ran into a weird problem...The gadget uses simple ajax to call a server side script on a sub domain I have and the xmlHttpRequest.open() call in the gadget .html javascript gets a "Access is Denied" error. But here is the kicker...it only gets that error on Vista Home (basic or premium). On Vista Ultimate or Vista Business it works fine...Im at a loss. Im positive its the version that is causing the error because I have tested across multiple internet cnxns and mulitple Vista Home and Ultimate/Business installs with the same results. Anyone have any ideas at all?

Note: Iam using REST.  I have tried turning off all antivirus and windows firewalls.  I have tried adding the server domain to the trusted sites in IE7...(all these seem to be common problems I found when searching for a solution on the web before I posted here, so I thought Id mention as things ive already tried).

Thanks for any thoughts or help anyone has.
