    You should go in the workplace, you to do "explore" in the drive or you have your Office 2003 installation CD. At this point, you look for the setup and you do right click then execute the same with administrative privileges. And that's it! (Demand for higher means that you can not execute this command unless you are in admin, or at least have the necessary permissions to your spot).

    I would suggest you to perform the following steps
    • Click the start Menu button and then select all programs.
    • Then search for the internet explorer
    • Right click over the internet explorer and choose "Run as administrator".
    • Now you will be asked a question in a new message box choose allow this will help you to start internet explorer you to choose the administrative privileges.
    • Now Copy and paste the following in the url or your brpowsers address bar http://www.microsoft.com/genuine .
    • This will take you to the windows genuine website and in the browser window click "validate windows" Button.

    The Solution to this problem is that you should check whether the session was a good administrator session or otherwise. Therefore it is necessary to check the rights of the session and open a trivial programs office suite as an administrator. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Office, right-click an Office program, click Run as administrator, and then click Continue and Click I Accept.
