I bought a new Dell Inpsiron Laptop with Windows 7 64bit. The user that is created is created as an Administrator and the system refuses to change, add or access any credentials. As soon as I click on "manage your credentials" the following error message pops up:

"You do not have permission to save files to this location. Select a different location"

Hi.

Create another admin and repeat. Does the problem show up there, too?

Lower down UAC settings from control panel and check...reboot is required.
