I bought a new computer today and office 2010 professional.  I was givien an activation key and told to download the software according to the prompts. The download keeps pausing and starting all over for no reason.  I disabled Norton because that was causing it to interupt the process, however, it is still pausing.

    In another post, you suggested the install was restarting. Here you suggest it is the download. Try downloading to another computer.  ... Thinkpads_User

    Isyour internet connection stable enough? You should order installation media if the download is not possible.
