Hope this helps

If the version of windows installed on your computer is not activated you would face issues to use any applications once the product is expired.

 
But if you have an issue with office programs with an error 25004 on an activated version of windows

Then the reason might be corrupted installation of office 2007 on the computer.

Uninstall office 2007 manually from the computer www.support.microsoft.com/928218, then

re-install it and check if it helps.

From Fixya referring to the same error -

I used http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218 to manually uninstall Office 2007 Home and Student. Once I followed each of the steps in the article, rebooted my system; the program would install again, otherwise half way through it would stop with error 25004 message. Hopes this helps anyone!
