I install windows 2000 SP4 and at this time I decided not to allow my kids to
have administrator right so I created another account with users right only.
When they log on, word, excel, powerpoint, etc want to install but fail with
error 1706. After each error I say ok and finally it load but it does this
each time. How can I fix this. You can email me at my email address also.

2 options: 1. Temporarily grant install rights to the new user, log on with
that account and open the various applications. This will allow the
applications complete the installation process which is what is happening
here. You can then remove the rights granted. Alternatively you could start
the applications as an Admin user when logged on with the standard user
account (Right click the application and click "Run as"). Again this will
allow the apps complete there installation tasks.

I does not happen when you login does it ?

If No is the answer all you have to do is copy your profile to the Default
user profile.

Then rename your kids profiles to something else other than your login. Next
time when they login, a new profile with the contents of the Default profile
(now your profile) will be created.

Should work like magic..
