UnPlug n' Pray Freezes

For some reason, when I run UnPlug n' Pray, it plays a sound and says "UPnP is Currently Enabled!". When I click "Disable UPnP", the program seems to freeze. I've checked the "Universal Plug and Play Device Host" in the services manager and it's been set to "Disabled". It's not really a big deal but why would it freeze? And why does it keep saying that it's enabled? Thank you

UPnP is "Universal Plug and Play" - not the same as PnP (Plug and Play)
It is not configured from the bios.

As per http://www.tweakxp.com/article37087.aspx , make sure that the SSDP Discovery Service is disabled as well - then run UnPlugn'Pray again.

As per the freezing issue - this could be anything.
Try running sfc /scannow for a start.
