ali.B's link leads you to a Microsoft Help and Support site. In this article MS requires you to make an adjustment to your Registry. For god's sake make a back-up of your Registry before you start fooling around with it. Even prof's can accidently mess up their Registry.

Once you open the Registry and before you make any changes to it, click in the menu bar on File | Export and save ALL, (see lower left-hand portion of the dialogbox) to your C:\ drive. Give the filename no more than eight characters... WHY?... in case you have to re-install the back-up Registry (you won't have to work with '~' (tilda's)) if something goes wrong. And if that happens, locating and executing the file via the command prompt will be easier because not a lot of people know how to work in DOS these days.
KISS, as I say (keep it simple... :))

I just wanted to make a point of it. People (in general) don't read ALL the instructions. :)
I work with students at a university and they're notorious for not reading enrolment instructions and such. Just wanted to keep it safe for nams.

Thanks Everyone for fast replies... I did try all that work with registry before posting the topic here. But what worked for me was using the ' Windows install cleanup wizard' . And the problem was solved :)
