Sounds like a bug with MapPoint. Check to see if you Windows Vista is
virtualizing any files or registry entries. to check look in the virtual
store for file look C:\users\[logonid]\appdata\local\virtualStore
and to see reg virts look here.
HKey Classes root\VirtualStore
The simple answer is probably just right click and "run as administrator" on
the map point icon. If that works then you could permantly change that icon
by right clicking and selecting properties and changing how it is run.
you can also create an app compat shim....
