  • Please try the below steps:

     

    WINDOWS VISTA:

    1) Click the START button.

    2) Click ALL PROGRAMS.

    3) Look at the list of your installed programs and find INTERNET EXPLORER.

    4) Point the mouse cursor over top of INTERNET EXPLORER until it is highlighted and click the RIGHT-MOUSE button and choose RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR from the menu.

    5) You will be prompted by a Windows Vista dialog box, and I want you to choose ALLOW.  This will allow IE to start with administrator priv's.

    6) In the new Internet Explorer session, manually type or copy this URL:  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine (again, make sure it's the new instance of IE that opened as 'admin').

    7) Once the /genuine web site loads in the new IE browswer.  Click the VALIDATE OFFICE button.

    What happened?  Are the results different?
