Cannot Open MS Office 2007

Hi, I installed MS Office 2007 Professional 2007, the installation process was fine. Now that it is installed, I cannot open any of the programs, an error comes up that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item"

I have Administrator rights on my laptop and run Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit which is an OEM version.

Can someone please help me? Thanks.

What happens if you run as administrator

Right Click and select 'Run as Administrator' (you may need to hold the Shift key when you right click in order to get the 'Run as Administrator' option).
