Microsoft Office has not been installed for current user

I cannot open anylonger the Office applications Word, Excel, ... on my Vista 64 bit machine.
Trying to open Word, a mix of messages appear:  "Please wait while Windows configures MS Office Professional Hybrid 2007";  another one: "MS Office has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the application".
I have already uninstalled Microsoft Office 2007 and installed it again:  no improvement.

Any suggestions?
Thank you for giving feedback.
Kind Regards,
Gaston

Dear,

Only one account has been defined on this machine (Administrator rights), there are no other user accounts.

I've found some info via:  http://www.gotosnapshot.com/myblog/http:/gotosnapshot.com/myblog/vista-64-office-2007-not-installed-for-current-user
I'm not a technical guy, but I'll check this out.

Thank you for giving feedback.

Dear,

The WINWORD.EXE  file is located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12".

The shortcut "Microsoft Office Word 2007"  is located in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office".
In this shortcut definition, the defined Target is "Microsoft Office Professional Hybrid 2007"  (in gray; which I cannot change) and the "Start in" field = empty!!! (instead of the location of the WINWORD.EXE  file).

How can I change this?  There is only one account (Administrator) defined on my Vista Ultimate 64 bit machine.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
Gaston
