Try re-installing, but before trying to open it, install the updates to bring it up to ver. 12.1.2:

This problem was solved by locating the Microsoft Office 2008:Mac preferences folder and deleting it. Apparently file coruption is common in Preferences folders. (Which there are manny Preferences folders)
