I have tried running Office Repair from the disk and this brings up 2 registry errors with the following messages:

"Error 1406. Setup cannot write the value to the registry key \CLSID\{F0291081-E87C-4E07-970A-A0A03761E536}. Verify that you have sufficient permissions to access the registry."

"Error 1406. Setup cannot write the value to the registry key \CLSID\{13DE4A42-8D21-4C8E-BF9C-8F69CB068FCA}. Verify that you have sufficient permissions to access the registry."

I have also tried reinstalling Office with no success.
