Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 always opens running the configuration setup

I have recently installed Office 2007 enterprise software in a lab environment. When I run the software as the administrator user the software loads up fine. However, when I log on as a student user account (XP operating system, Windows 2003 server) and try to open say Microsoft Word, each time I do so it goes through a startup routine (configuring Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007). If I add this user account to be a member of the local administrators group of the machine, then this configuration routine does not appear when loading these office applications. For obvious reason, I can't leave this option selected in lab environment.

I have given the authenticated users group full control over HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0 in the registry but no luck.

 What could be causing this to happen? Thanks for you help

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Office was installed from a share on the network, not from the CD directly. So, no the users would not have had permissions to this folder.

You may want to move the installation folder to a location to which the user accounts have read access for this to work. This is what has caused this issue for me in the past.
