Everytime I run a program, it says "Configuring Microsoft office small business 2007..." for 5 minutes

I have just finished installing MS Office 2007 Small Business, on a brand new XP Pro machine. Installed fine, runs like a swiss watch.

EXCEPT when I first start a program.

No matter how many restarts, when I first run one of the programs (any, Word, Excel, etc), it brings up the MS Office 2007 installer interface, and says "Configuring Microsoft office small business 2007..."

It says that for 1-2 minutes, until the progress bar runs all the way to 100%, and then the program starts fine.

I have found a Windows Vista Fix (unclear as it may be), but none for XP
Vista: http://forums.techarena.in/office-setup/1024781.htm#post4028361

I have no other Office versions installed on the machine.

The message pops up regardless of user (does it for users and admins alike)

How do I fix this?

Try logging on as an administrator and then launching one of the programs. That should allow the install to complete successfully.

xxdcmast, been there, done that, no result.

But after your post I tried it again, just in case - and alas, it worked.

Thanks for the help, the points are yours.
