    Turn off the current security and then try to install it. After installing, turn the security back on. To install office 2007, there must be an active internet connection. A lot of times your anti virus software will prevent new applications from being installed.
    If that does not work, turn off the windows fire wall or the security system firewall, install the software, turn the fire wall back on. A lot of times a fire wall will prevent applications from being installed.
    Sometimes in XP you have to install applications this way:
    click my computer
    click control panel
    click add remove programs
    click add new programs, on the left side of the window
    click CD or Floppy bar
    Install the CD in the drive and click next
    follow through with the directions, install, restart computer

    If that still does not work, let the forum know and we will provide further suggestions.
  2. Office 2007 can be a rascal to install. Try copying the files from your disc onto a folder on the hard drive . From there run the setup.exe from within the folder
  3. What kind of PC is it?

    Find what version of Office 2007 it is, and make sure you meet all of the requirements.
