My solution to that is to not install FF, OOo, Gimp or other software
for Windows. Instead, I use Portable Apps:
In fact, what I do is uncompress the downloaded apps to a folder on my

people want to run the app they can simply copy the folder to their
desktop or USB key and run it. No installation required.
