Some of you may remember the EXECFTPS problem in this thread and all the helpful suggestions:

I post this as a new thread because I think it merits running it by you guys.
I finally figured out what was causing it! I had Cisco Systems VPN Client installed for my job, and while it was not loaded during all my attempts, loading the software and then UNCHECKING Statefull Firewall solved all my problems!
I hope this helps anybody who may experience the same issue and save you all the grief I had!
