Do look in the archives when this has come up tens of times. The usual
cause is a bug in a Windows XP critical update: see
Adding HOME=C:/ (or some other sensible value) to the end of the target in
the shortcut used to launch R will circumvent this. (There are more
details in the rw-FAQ on how to set environment variables.)
