Uhh are you logged on as administrator? If not you cannot install anything.

If you're a regular user....you shiould ask your admin to install whatever you need.

Well what error(s) do you get? Need a little more information than "can't install programs".

For example:

What programs?

Are they compatible with Windows 7 (have you checked?)

What exact error message do you get?

Is your administrator account in the administrators account group for your local PC? <--- this is a big one.

Click on your start menu,

In the search box type in Compmgmt.msc and hit enter.

Browse to Local users and groups. Click on groups. Now click on administrators.

Are you a local adminstrator or a domain adminstrator? If you are only a local adminstrator, will not be able to install software if there is a restriction on the domain.

Is this a legitimate copy of office 2007 and Windows 7 pro?

I've installed office 2007 on many workstations including W7 pro with no issues...

Wild guess but is the computer account in a restricted OU? For example even if you have admin rights to the machine and even if you have domain admin rights if the computer account is in the wrong OU you may not have admin rights to that OU. So i would suggest checking the OU the computer account is in and making sure you have rights over that OU or if the OU is restricted some how.
