Not knowing Vista, I have not much to contribute, but a little bit of

Re : C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\conf\httpd.conf

If you are really at the beginning, and if this is not forbidden in 
Vista, I would suggest to de-install your Apache package, and re-install 
it in a directory such as "C:\Apache2.2" or even "C:\Apache2".
That will take you 5 minutes now, and save you later many keystrokes, 
many typos and many headaches.
Paths with spaces in them bite you sooner or later, and that one is 
really terrible. Can't even paste it into an email without wrapping it 
And think of your <Directory> sections in your httpd.conf later..

I really don't know why the Apache Windows package creators embed such a 
terrible path by default in that installer.
