Nmap 6 bug

I had Nmap 5.51 installed and it worked perfectly. I installed Nmap 6 and it reports everything as not responding (use
-Pn) Switches, routers, workstations, servers.
Command used: nmap 172.x.x.x
Nmap 5 output - yellow text:
Host is up (0.0034s latency).
Not shown: 994 closed ports
PORT STATE SERVICE
135/tcp open msrpc
139/tcp open netbios-ssn
445/tcp open microsoft-ds
2002/tcp open globe <-- possible reason for excessive traffic on this workstation, reason for the scan in the first
2967/tcp open symantec-av
3389/tcp open ms-term-serv
MAC Address: 18:A9:05:D6:B9:89 (Hewlett Packard)
Uninstalled Nmap 5.51, rebooted, installed Nmap 6 (Reinstalled using different downloaded files from your site - to
ensure no download issues.)
Exact same command as above, using Nmap 6:
Starting Nmap 6.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2012-06-11 09:44 Eastern Daylight Time
Note: Host seems down. If it is really up, but blocking our ping probes, try -Pn
Nmap done: 1 IP address (0 hosts up) scanned in 1.13 seconds
Reboot does not help.
Windows 7 Pro 64 bit with SP1 and all other updates.
8 Gigs of RAM
I7 2720QM (2.20 GHz quad core laptop)
In a domain - domain firewall off by policy - Not my choice.
Fresh reboot of Windows
No related logs in Windows for Nmap
No traffic seems to be generated when I do a packet capture.
Also, there is a vulnerability in the version of Python that Nmap 5.51 is running. How do I update this? Better yet,
can you release or send me an updated version of 5.51? Until 6 is working, I am stuck on 5.
