I encountered this problem, and either Stata tech support or an
item in the archives (which I can't find now) indicated that
it could be due to a conflict under Windoze between a virus
checking program and Stata with respect to access to each new
temp file.  You can temporarily turn off the virus-checker
to diagnose/fix this.  I believe there was a permanent solution involving
re-directing the Windoze temp file to a different directory, and 
telling the virus-checking program to ignore files in that
directory.  I'd give a more definitive account here, but I'm not
currently in a situation to search my own Stata notes to see
if I can find the details of what I learned.

Hope this is of some use.
