Default Word 2007 keeps installing

Every time I open Word 2007, it goes into an installation mode which takes
about 5 minutes to complete. The other Office programs work ok.

What is happening? How do I stop from trying to install itself every time I
start it?

Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
Windows Update's version number 7.2.6001.788
Internet Explorer Product Version 7.00.6000.16791
LENOVO ThinkPad T60
Physical Memory 1535 MB Total

Thank you,

If you are running both Word 2007 and Word 2003 on the same machine, see the
"Hacking the Registry" section of the article at
http://www.gmayor.com/Toolbars_in_word_2007.htm.

If you are running Word 2007, only, try logging in as Administrator and see
if that allows the installation process to complete successfully.

The registry change seems to be working, thank you.
