I (finally) got another chance to look at this late last night, and I'm convinced Firefox is the problem.
If FF is the default browser, weird stuff happens, this being the strangest. I reinstalled Chrome, seeing they have fixed their own particular install issue, and I made it the default browser. It works fine, as did Chromium before I removed it (I prefer Chrome). I uninstalled and reinstalled FF, but that changed absolutely nothing that I could see. Making it the default again causes the same issue even after reinstall.
Well, now that Chrome is working again, I can live with it as default. FF fell out of my favorite browser list some time ago, as they had totally messed up the 64 bit Windows version and started getting as bloated as IE. I still think it's odd, and it is something you should keep in mind if someone else runs into this. At this point, I don't know there is much either of us can do.
