    So yesterday, I tried installing Microsoft Office 2013 on my PC and got this error message:
    "Error 1406. Setup cannot write the value Assembly to the registry key

    I did some research on the problem, going to several different pages on Microsoft's Support site, and some other forums trying literally everything. I tried so many times to install 13, and even an older copy of Office 2010 that I own and I kept getting the same error. So today, after exhausting literally all of my options, I figured a system restore would be the only thing to help me.
    So I spent all day today backing up everything to restore and I completely wiped out my PC and restored it. Well, I just now tried to go and install Office 2010 and got the exact same error message.
    I'm so completely lost at this point. I have tried literally everything I could find and NOTHING is working. Anyone have any ideas?
