Are you are using the old FB/IB '.gdb' extension for your database

If so, this is a known issue with Windows XP and XP's new System Restore
'feature' -- which treats all files with the 'gdb' extension as XP
system files.

To overcome this issue you can:

- disable the System Restore feature, via the System Control Panel, or

- change the extension on the database files to '.fdb'. Please note
that there is a special procedure which you must follow to rename the
"isc4.gdb"/security database.
