Sounds like a problem with the PHP configuration not handling
sessions (and thus passwords) properly.  This is common with 
Windows; PHP's default paths for saving session data aren't 
always initialized properly.

Try adding a line like the following into your local/config.php


(It's okay to choose some other directory as an appropriate 
place to save PHP session files.)

After making this change, see if you are able to upload files.
If that's not it, then we'll look at something else.

Also, if you happen to know -- what version of PHP are you
