Argh!! Error 1722

I just installed Office XP on a new machine. Once it was installed users from the domain were able to run Word etc. However it popped up an annoying error three times before it would let you in. This message said:

"Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor"

It turns out that in order to run Word, users need to be an administrator on the machine. WTF? Is this just so that word macro viruses can contact the network? Someone must be smoking something at MS, or there will be a way around this. Please tell me there is a way around this.
