I have been trying to re-install Office XP since reformatting my hard drive in the last two weeks. Initially I used my recovery CDs to get the computer running again. After this I installed all the usual software such as AVG, Ad-Aware, SpyBot, Uninstaller Suite etc.. During this process I decided to remove the installed Norton software. Just after this I then attempted to install my Office XP and was hit with this, "The system administrator has set policies that prevent this installation". I guess I better let you know I had also turned off the restore system settings.
I was at a loss to reason why this comment was called for as I was yet to load any new users as I found some software was not usable by all users if loaded after adding new users. This means I was still using the administrator account 'Compaq_User'.
I did a few searches on the net and then tried the Ctrl-Alt-Del twice at LOGON to try and get into the administrator account. At this point I was hit with 'Unable to LOGON due to account restrictions'.
Man I am now getting frustrated. I went to the XP Newsgroups and did some searches and added a new problem and got two answers which did not help.
Now I am at a dead end and have found this fantastic site.
Look forward to some entertaining help.
