Just repeating my past advice. 1) Uninstall the Office 2007 demo. 2) Turn off UAC during the install.

In reply to: Yup.

i didn't have to turn uac off, or do anything else to install office 2000 on windows vista. all i did was pop in the disc and follow the instructions like i have for many previous systems.

I'm sharing what I found I had to do for a few installs. After a few failures I share what got it working. I'm only at a few hundred installs so I bet it only happens occasionally.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
