    My new PC came with Office trial version pre-loaded. I have since purchased
    Office Home & Student 2007. Before installing it, I uninstalled the trial
    version & the Assistant. In installing my new program, I got past entering
    my key and "Agree". It looked like installation was beginning. Then I got
    an "Error 1303: C:programFiles(x86)\CommonFiles\MicrosoftShared\EQUATION
    Unable to access. Verify I have the EQUATION folder and that I have
    administrative rights and Retry."

    I have the folder on my computer and I am the Administrator. Still no go.

    What do I do next?

    In your origonal post in the 'setup group' a response was to uninstall
    Office 2007 including the Activation Assistant, via Add/Remove, run disk
    cleanup to remove temp files, reboot the PC, then install from cd
