[tor-talk] Auto Start doesn't work in Windows 7?

I am trying to get my new 64 bit Windows 7 computer to do things that my
old 32 bit Windows XP machine used to do so well before it broke.

I have installed Tor Vidalia Exit Bundle 0.2.17 with Tor, and I
have it mostly working, but there are two or three problems.

1. Although I have checked the box in the settings to start Vidalia when
my system starts, it doesn't.  I have to start it manually.

2. From time to time, perhaps every four hours to a few times a day, the
following warnings appear in the log, say 20 times over about a one or
two second period: 'Myself' is a pseudonym.
Mar 10 16:31:12.779 [warn] Couldn't open
(C:\Users\Myself\AppData\Roaming\tor\cached-descriptors.new) for
writing: Permission denied
Mar 10 16:31:12.779 [warn] Unable to store router descriptor

3. I am not sure about this one yet, but it seems to shut down
unexpectedly every few days.

Is it possible that I may have something configured incorrectly, or are
these actual bugs?
