Well, maybe that causes your actual problem?
On another thought, I'd check the users write permission for the games directory, or the save-game directory in particular. Maybe you installed as Administrator and a normal user has only read permission and thus cannot write the file.
You may also try reformating all
your hard disk drives to make sure you lose any data you ever had and then reinstall Windows.
And last but not least, try Linux and WINE, this way it works. XD
(No, seriously, check those read/write permissions. I assume blindly, that if you mess around with the registry, you know how to do that.)
