Office Help does not open and generates errors

When trying to open Help windows generates the following errors.

CLView can't display help. CLView cannot install the necessary files due to Windows Installer error 33. The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file.

I've Googled this and noticed there's a few people having this problem but no solutions out there.

Try to repair Office - Add remove programs, click change, click repair or reinstall, etc. You will need your disk if you deleted installation files.
