Sounds like your install did not add java to your machines path.

To verify, open a command prompt:

Start->Run
Type "cmd" WITHOUT the quotes.
Type "java -version". Again..WITHOUT the quotes

Most likely, you will see an error saying unrecognized command or something similar... Google how to add programs to the windows path OR uninstall, REBOOT, then reinstall and repeat the above tests. For some reason the windows installer sucks about half the time.
I save all my Campaign Files to DropBox. Not only can I access a campaign file from pretty much any OS that will run Maptool(Win,OSX, linux), but each file is versioned, so if something goes crazy wild, I can always roll back to a previous version of the same file.

Get your Dropbox 2GB via my referral link, and as a bonus, I get an extra 250 MB of space. Even if you don't don't use my link, I still enthusiastically recommend Dropbox..
