Your PHP configuration isn't properly set up for being able to
save PHP session files -- the webserver may not have permission to
write files to E:\WINDOWS\TEMP\ .  It's also possible that Windows is
confused by the pathname that is resulting from the default
setting, so you might try one of the following near the top
of your local/config.php file:



The PHP docs also indicate that this step is required for Windows
systems running PHP versions prior to 4.3.6.

Hope this helps -- if not, let us know and we may be able to troubleshoot
