Error 1913: Setup cannot update file C:\windows\win.ini

Installing Microsoft Office 2010 using the preinstalled "out of the box" function, I got this error:
Error 1913: Setup cannot update file C:\windows\win.ini

Permissions were right. I could rename the file, so that means it was not in use by some other program... but apparently it was Trend Micro blocking the installation.

Using services.msc I disabled all Trend Micro stuff, finished the install and rebooted to get all services running as normal.

    This trick worked for me:
    Go to C:\Windows
    Locate Win.ini file in Windows folder
    Right click and rename it as Win.old
    Reboot your computer
    Install MS Office
    Now repeat the step 1 to 3
    Reboot you machine
