Hi Tom,

Having installed Office 2007 Home & Student on my pc which is running Windows 7 64 bit, on trying to open Word I receive a UAC dialogue box prior to running application, please can you advise how I can get rid of the dialogue box when trying to run Word?
When opening either Excel and PowerPoint these are fine.

I disabled both the UAC and any firewall etc prior to installing the 0ffice 2007 suite.

I would apprciate your help,

Cheers Dino

That shouldn't happen unless you're trying to open a Word document that you don't have access to. Turning off UAC is probably not a good idea unless you normally use an unprivileged account.

If this was happening to me then I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling Office.
