You have two possible issues:

1. The Windows permissions model changed in Vista/Win7/Win8.
Spambayes cannot be installed in the default location, because Windows
won't let it run from there.  You must install it somewhere else, like

2. SpamBayes is a 32 bit plugin.  If you are using a 64 bit version of
Office, it cannot install as a plugin in Outlook, because 32 bit
plugins don't work in 64 bit applications.  If you run 64 bit Office,
you must install SpamBayes as a proxy server between your ISP
connection and Outlook.
