Are you trying to install the new version of office? Or upgrade Vista? This error is normally related to installing a newer version of office.

Did you follow these directions exactly?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/234368

Also you can try this.
- Remove the frontpage ISAPI filter from all web sites and the top level"Web Sites" in IIS manager
- Search the registry for all entries containing "FrontPage" and "webserver extensions" and deleted as many of the keys as possible
-Remove the directory "C:\ProgramFiles\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions"

- Trying to install Vista Ultimate upgrade (without going through clean install) from Vista Home Premium
- also un-installed MS Office 2003 Web Components
- directions re: microsoft/kb/234368 don't apply (no virtual servers to un-extend, nor is there anything to remove via Add / Remove)
- searched registry for "frontpage" (and removed the following program, as well as registry keys) and "webserver extensions" (nothing found)
- removed MS Expression Web 2
- removed the folder "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions"
- reboot and try upgrading Vista Ultimate again
- still cannot upgrade (must uninstall FPSE)

As there seemed no MS tool to remove them I got brutal in the end.

1) Removed the frontpage ISAPI filter from all web sites and the top level
"Web Sites" in IIS manager
2) Searched the registry for all entries containing "FrontPage" and "web
server extensions" and deleted as many of the keys as possible
3) Used a delete on boot utility to remove the directory "C:\Program
Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions"

Tried it all, then bit the bullet and did a "clean install" instead of upgrade . . . now dealing with those issues
