    EULA Keeps Popping Up After Update (Office XP)

    Hello,
    I went to the office update site and applied a few patches today (can't remember the numbers). It seems to have gone OK, but every time I start an Office application now like Oulook, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. the EULA pops up. I have clicked "accept" every time, but the EULA keeps coming back every time I start an Office application - even if it is one I have already accepted the EULA for.
    I have rebooted the computer, cursed, shouted, and am almost to the point of waving a dead chicken over my PC, but nothing has helped. Has anybody else had this problem? Does anybody know how to fix it?

    Thanks!

    OK, I promise I am not in the habit of writing messages to myself in public forums. <img src=/S/chatter.gif border=0 alt=chatter width=38 height=16> , but I figured out how to fix this problem and wanted to share it.

    You have to accept the EULA as an administrator.

    Why? I don't know, but when I logged in as an administrator, fired up Excel, and accepted the EULA, the pop-up went away even when logged on as a regular user.

    Oh well, I hope this helps somebody.
