Windows7 and .emacs files

(Trying to make a big push to convert from UltraEdit to Emacs because I've just seen too many people too good with editing in Emacs to not try...)

I'm trying to set a HOME .emacs file for GNU Emacs 23.2 on Windows7 64-bit.  I'm trying to follow the recommendations in section 3.5 at .

Problems I'm having is:

1. I can't create files in c:\ (I don't know why, it's my work computer so maybe there's a restriction)...
2. I can't make '.emacs' files anywhere because the OS tells me I need a filename (i.e., I can't have a leading '.' in the filename).
3. The registry hives mentioned at the link don't seem to exist in the registry, so I don't know what I can do to set them.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thank you,
