I installed Vista Home premium over the weekend without a sigle problem.

Whuile i was out decided that i would also purchase myself a copy of Office 2007.

Tried to install it and it wont install. Checked it on another machine (XP Pro) and it worked fine so i know that it is not the cd.

Checked the drivers on my computer for the DVD drive and everything comes back ok.

Any avice would be great

What kind of errors did you get? That will help a lot. I had problems installing some software. For some reason Vista wouldn't let some files expand to a folder. I kept thinking it was a permissions issue. The UAC (user account control) was causing me problems and since I'm the only user I turned it off. Haven't had a problem installing anything. MS doesn't recommend turning UAC off but it was just too much hassle for me.

Have you checked the Event Viewer for any errors? Was this an upgrade to XP or a clean install?

UAC is your best friend. It'll continue to nag you until you tell it to shut up. BUT, if you tell it to shut up (turn it off), then the onus is on you to not let anything elevate without your permission. And without the prompts, this is very difficult to do.

That being said, I've had UAC turned off since I installed the RTM build and haven't had any issues. BUT, we turned it off at work on January 30th - and we've already had a major infection because of it.
