Default Disabling Office Live introductory splash screen (Office 2007)

Hi, hope you can help.
Have a new laptop. Vista Premium.


2 user accounts set up: one with administrator rights (for maintenance work) and one with standard rights (for every day work).

Machine comes preinstalled with a trial version of Office 2007, home and student, which I have decided to upgrade to a registered copy and activated. All of this was done in the account with administrator rights. Everything behaves fine if I run office under this account.

When I log on to the account with standard rights, and load Excel or Word, I perpetually get a splash screen on startup that invites me to "Get Started with Office Live". This splash screen has a check-box "do not show this message again". However the setting in this checkbox is ignored every time, so the message is displayed every time I launch.

Anything I can do about it? I tried assigning admin rights temporarily to the account but it made no difference.

Ta very much.

Default Problem solved

Solution:
Uninstall MS Office Live.
And don't bother to reinstall it.

Interestingly, the machine would not allow me within MS Office simply to disable the add-in rather than uninstall it. "Con-Addins" could not be disabled. Seems rather otiose their providing a menu option for that purpose, then, it seems to me.

Onward and upward.
