EDIT: I am adding in a couple of links that provide clearer step-by-step instructions for various versions of Windows as the MS instructions are terse. This problem is not a LO-specific issue, but a general OS directory permission error. The instructions provided for Adobe Creative Suite (XP and Vista) and Quickbooks (XP, Vista, 7, and 8) are hopefully detailed enough for less experienced users.
