A fine mess you have gotten yourself into, eh?  Congratulations for at least
trying to outsmart Vista.

Why is your httpd.conf under Apache/ instead of Apache/conf?  Unnecessary

By default, you'll see the httpd service is run-as SYSTEM (LocalSystem)
acct, which apparently doesn't have privileges to joeUser until you have
logged in interactively.  In fact, I'm not even sure which of the various
paths are physical :)

But in any case, for grins just try changing Apache service to run-as user
joeUser and see if that doesn't solve your entire headache, for now.
