Have you tried running the program in compatibility mode?? Right click on the anim8or.exe and go properties>compatibilty and set it to windows xp.

Haha, yeah I've read that on a PC magazine complaining about Vista a while ago. Windows 7 will be worth upgrading to though, I've read it's better than XP. Although, for quacker, that wouldn't be a feasible option.
