MS Office doesn't function


I have MS Office 2007 installed in my machine (and only Excell 2003), when i oppen MS Word 2007 it takes some time, then it runs the configuration (print screen attached) and says configuration in progress. after it completes it asks for reboot. when i reboot and come back and start MS office 2007 it again does the same thing.

When i run MS access it doesn't open it at all and gives error" the application failed to initialize properly (0xcoooooo6) click OK to terminate the application"

i removed the MS office completely and re-installed, it didn't fix the problem, i repaired MS office and repaired Windows, but still the problem was not resolved.

Please help.

I've always tried to avoid running 2 versions of Office at the same time. (2003 & 2007), It often seems to cause problems.

I suggest that you un-install Excel 2003 & Office 2007. Then run the installer clean-up program from here:
Running the clean-up program will just install the software. Then run the software & look for instances of MS Office & remove them. Reboot & install Office 2007.
In support of the above suggestion to run the clean-up program, i'd suggest to do a scandisk on you C drive as well.
run system restore to before you installed office 2007.uninstall 2003 ,reboot pc and then install 2007.update all service pack for 2007

did all those mentioned things, no luck yet.
Just to see if it is a profile problem, create a new profile with administrator rights.
Then see if it still give you the same problem under the new profile?
There is some internal issues. Reinstall MS Office
