Office 2007 and User account control conflict
I have a new q9400 CPU/6gb ddr2 RAM Computer. It came with windows office home and student uninstalled.

I log in as administrator.

When I installed the Office suite and rebooted it keeps on trying to reinstall it and then error messages me that I have it installed on the wrong user account. It then closes when I click OK.

IF I DISABLE the UAC it works fine.

I have uninstalled the software and reinstalled it both with the UAC on and OFF but when the UAC is ON, Office does not work.

Microsoft and HP tech support were of no viable assistance. Hours of running around in circles.....

Does anyone have any idea on this situation? Is this a BUG or am I doing something wrong?

I prefer to have the UAC ON even though I see many ppl disable it.

Do you log on as administrator or your account that is a admin? I myself have just disabled UAC, besides being a annoying pain, it also has been known for causing trouble with programs and installs.
