System Admin has set policies to prevent this installation

    I am trying to re-install Microsoft Publisher in my two computers.
    The desktop installed perfectly but the notebook gives me this
    message - "The System Administrator has set policies to prevent this
    installation".

    I have only one account and it is as administrator and I didn't set
    any policies that I am aware of.

    Can anyone please tell me how to cancel the policy and where I would
    find reference to it. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry - both computers are new. Windows 7 64 bit on the desktop and
    32 bit on the notebook.

    Thank you.
    I fixed the problem, temporarily at least.
    I select start and type in " User Account Control Settings"
    Change the slider to the lowest position - restart the computer
    then install the program and put the slider back after.
