Default Acrobat 7 Pro Win installation error

This has happened to me twice, so I thought I'd better post it:

Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional installation error with Windows XP Home

The following error might occur even if you are logged onto Windows using an administrator account:

Error 1303. The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Adobe PDF.

This is caused because the folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\ is set to Read Only.
Windows does not generally allow you to remove the read-only attribute to this folder, but you can
fix it like this:

In Windows Explorer, try to share the folder. You will probably get a message telling you
that an error occurred which prevented the share from being created, but you will find that
you can now access the folder anyway. However, the sharing attempt might have renamed the
folder to Shared Documents, so you must change it back to Documents.

Can you imagine how long it took to work this out!?
