should this work ?:
Run VS2008 as "run as admin"
in box that pops up -> run with restricted access checkbox -> uncheck this box then the error goes away.

Thanks for your advise. The problem is that I am not able to start VS 2008 at all. Please help. This error is popping up in an alert box.

Ok.  Next try with :

Click on the Start menu, choose All Programs, then Accessories
Right-click on the item named Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator
Click continue to launch an elevated command prompt
Run "%programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 9\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /setup

Note: the command line in step 4 assumes that you have installed Visual Studio 2008 to the default path on an x86 system.  You will need to update the command line if your system is not an x86 system or if you installed Visual Studio 2008 to a non-default path.

There should be an admininstrator account on you box. Else with non-admin rights you cannot install anything. Better check user accounts on you system.
