  • Hi,

    Please try resetting Registry Keys' Permissions to check it out:

    1. Log on the computer as a user who has rights such as administrator to change the permissions.
    2. Click Start> Run, type "regedit" and press Enter.

    Navigate to the following keys: Right Click on them and then click Permissions


    3. Click Add
    4. In the "Enter the object names to select", type your account name in the blank.
    5. Click OK.
    6. Check "Full Control" option in the "allow" Permissions column.
    7. Click OK.
    8. Try to install Office again.
