Automatic configuration of the current version of Microsoft Office Access has failed.

I have a terminal server with Office 2007 installed. All users on this server except for one can use Access without a problem. One user gets a 'Windows Installer' status indicator that immediately fails and gives the message 'Automatic configuration of the current version of Microsoft Office Access has failed.' and then something about not having administrator access.

I have thus far tried:
a.     repair on Office installation: no change in behavior
b.     adding user to Domain Admins group: a setup indicator displays 'Configuring Office 2007 Professional Plus' for a long while, then Access works, but it does this setup every time Access is run, and removing the user from Domain Admins group returns to the previous error.
c.     installing all available Office updates: no change in behavior
