Hi there Witchy

I would not know why Vista would do this and i am quite sure this is not normal for vista to do so but have you tried making hidden files vivible before checking if the file is present? ...maybe it will show up who knows

1. Click the round blue Start thing in the left corner
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Folder Options
4. Click the View tab
5. Click Show hidden files and folders
6. If you want to see system files as well, unclick Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
7. Click OK

there u go... i doubt this being the case nut it s worth a try

Greetings and goodluck, ...Joshua

PS you could also just copy someone else's settings.dat and throw it in the right folder before starting MX again
