Windows Installer runs everytime an Office 2007 app is started

After trying to install additional Office 2007 Professional components everytime an Office 2007 app is started first the message "the language of this installation package is not supported by your system" appears then Windows Installer runs with the message "Windows is configuring Microsoft Office Professional Hybrid 2007". I've tried a complete Office uninstall / reinstall, including cleaning the registry and deleting leftover files, but with no effect. There's little helpful info on this on the web, and I'm at the point of reinstalling Vista to fix this, so does anyone have any ideas?

Make sure the user has admin rights, then when you start an app and you receive the error message, put in the Office cd and let i t install. See what happens.

Thanks for that but the user is myself and I have full admin rights, and UAC is disabled. CD is not needed as the installer runs & finishes itself each time. Oh, by the way, the same problems occur on closing an Office app too.

Just from what I've already tried I can see this is not the same problems that's afflicted earlier versions of Office in this respect. Have also tried thorough deinstall using REVO Uninstaller then reinstalling with no affect. Also reinstalling under a different admin user account, again with no result.
Any more ideas???

Have found the solution! Maybe MS anticipated something in releasing this article.....but anyway it worked for me. Followed the instructions here then reinstalled and this fixed the problems:

Hope this helps anyone else in the same or similar situation.
