I got this error whilst trying to install Office 2013. I previously has Office 2010 installed but uninstalled it and rebooted my computer prior to attempting to install Office 2013.

The error I get is “Error 1920. Service ‘Windows Font Cache Service’ (Font Cache) failed to start. Verify you have sufficient  privileges to start system services.”

I had right clicked on the setup.exe file and selected ‘Run as Administrator’. How can I get round this problem?

I found other supposed fixes on the net but for me to fix this problem was super simple.

Go to Services > Windows Font Cache Service (I found mine was set to ‘disabled’) set it to Manual. And that’s it. Couldn’t be much easier!
