    I discovered that I couldn't change my UAC settings in Windows 7 and after digging around online I came across this thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...3-705a13de486a
    which acknowledges it's a known issue but I suspect it will never be fixed as Office 97 is no longer supported.

    My fix was to download a utility named UACTweak.exe which presented a GUI that allowed me to disable UAC.
    I can't find an official site for the utility (or even the site where I got it), but I have attached it here as it worked fine for me.

    It could be that this will do just as well however: http://www.tweakuac.com/home/
