Worked once I changed it to a REG_SZ and removed the trailing space from the value name. Thanks!

Yes, that did it. I had a security issue on the target folder which was causing me grief.

comment How to use NetLimiter to regulate my upload bandwidth load?
So just set a global upload limit of 890 Kbps (below my cap of 893 Kbps) and I should be good? Want to make sure I am not missing anything.

comment Windows 7's PATH and environment variables are corrupted
I had the same problem. I found a few different things that triggered it (running certain programs, running installers, etc.) but no reason those would cause it (they work fine on other machines or in a VM.) Eventually I had other problems compounding the need to reinstall which fixed everything.

@Pavel Watch-out getting cocky about being a "professional programmer" and imune to viruses. Sure, being a responsible user who knows their way around the computer reduces the likelihood, but anyone can get a virus.
