Umm, strange.  Is the file really in that directory?
Try putting the following code in the *scratch* buffer:

(file-exists-p "C:/progra~1/emacs/ess-5.1.24/lisp/ess-site.el")

and then after the closing bracket, press C-x C-e.
If "t" is reported in the echo area at the bottom of emacs, you have
the right directory; but if it says "nil", it means the path is wrong.

let us know how you get on.
