Is the .ini file marked "Read only"?  Can you manually edit it and save it
with Notepad?  If not, it's a privileges issue.

It really sounds like you are not signed in with an ID that has
Administrative privileges, or that CW Skimmer is not running with
Administrator privileges (though I'm not sure why that would be required).
Or maybe it *is * running with Adminstrator Privileges, and won't let
"ordinary" userids (non-Administrators) shut it down.

Are you starting it by double clicking on the .exe file, or by right
clicking the .exe file and selecting "Run as an administrator"?  Or are you
opening up command prompt (without adminstrator privileges), and then
typing CWSkimmer.exe?
