Error 0x8007000D when activating Office 2010.??

Error: 0x8007000D when activating Office 2010.

Solution: 
Problem

When you are trying to activate Office 2010 you receive a message saying “An unspecified error has occurred. Your request cannot be processed at this time. Please try again later. (0x8007000D)”.

It is also advisable to check to see if Device Manager is unable to load (at this point, it should not display any devices but instead show a blank window).
Cause

This is caused by a registry error or an operating system issue.
Solution
Download Subinacl from the link below:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=e8ba3e56-d8fe-4a91-93cf-ed6985e3927b&displaylang=en
Run and install the Subinacl.msi file into the C drive.
(Should be the default install location when you run the file)
Once you have installed this successfully, right click on the link below and click Save Target As / Save Link As to download it: Office 2010 Activation Fix Batch File.
Go to the folder where you downloaded the batch file. Right click on the file and click “Run as administrator”. Click Yes or Continue to proceed if prompted.
If using Windows XP then you can run the file normally while logged in as an administrator user.
Once done, the Command Prompt will say “Press any key to continue”. Do this and the window will close.

Office will now activate and Device Manager should now display the devices correctly.

How to add Startup items to Windows 8.

Problem

You want to be able to add startup items that run when Windows starts. In previous versions of Windows, you could easily add them to the “Startup” folder in the Start menu which is no longer visible.

Solution

Open the Windows 8 start screen by doing one of the following:
Press the Windows key
Move mouse to the bottom left of the screen. When the start screen icon appears, click once.

OR (as commented by Rick) Press the ‘Windows key’+'R’
Type %appdata% and press Enter. This should take you to “C:\Users\<User-Name>\AppData\Roaming”.
Navigate to “\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”. The full path should now look something like:
“C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”.
Add shortcuts to the programs you want to automatically start into this folder.

You can now add any shortcuts you want to start when you start your computer.
