Already tried running as an Admin and tried to install it in various XP compatibility modes.
Also installed all updates. This is an Acer Aspire 5630-4GB Ram. I may just have to bite the bullet and go Openoffice or buy something like Wordperfect temporarily. I don't have the time to really play with this stuff.
The two solutions I have seen-changing the on regedit key-see first post-I have not been able to do.
The other solution was to turn off the customer service notification

However, I can't find how to get to this area. Can anyone help?
What do I type in or click on to get to Local Group Policy Editor?
I am not a "newbie" This is just the most frustrating thing so far.
