Our Company has installedd MS office 2007 Professional Plus on all its desktop, we have both Windows xp and Windows vista business(vista only on laptops). We are running the install in quiet/slient mode. after a user has let it set up for the first time and goes to use it a second or third time and so fourth when ever they open outlook or work in any other app a dialog box pops up stating that it is configuring, Sometimes this happens als when they go to save, we can not figure out what is causing this has any one else seen this issue with office 2007 pro plus or any other office 2007 versions and how do you resolve it. We have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and also doing a software install via Group policy but neither of these have fixed it either.

1. One thing is you need to insert the physical office 2007 media and wait untill it completes reconfiguring
2. Also you can login with a different user account and see if the same issue happens

the issue was corrected by removing the dell support software package, in some cases when you restart it is resolved and some instances you will have to uninstall office 2007 and reinstall. This is a known issue accoring to dell and it can occur in any version of office 2007
