Annoying: Configuring Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007...

Hi

Recently i finally managed to install Office after getting an error message...
Now i am getting this other annoying thing that is not one of those errors...
But is even worse than an error message as it does this everytime i try to
open any of the Office application like: Word, Exel, PowerPoint, all of them!

I always get this annoying window with the following message on it:
"Configuring Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007..."
after waiting like 25 minutes forced you to restar the machine just to be on
the same situation over and over and over again, woow this is really annoying!!!

I tried this with Word only, but still the same thing:
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1

Any Help will be appreciate.

Is this when you open from the Start>All Programs>Office 2003 shortcuts?
Has there ever been an earlier version of an Office product installed on this machine?

Well this this Office 2007, and yes, there was a version of Offices installed,
but it was Office 2007, it was the trial that comes with all Windows Vista and 7
then i uninstalled and re-installed the full version from the Office 2007 CD-DVD.

What about the launch from the Start menu icons?
Do you get the same behaviour?

Suggest you completely uninstall the full version through Windows - then reboot and run a manual uninstall or use the Microsoft Fix-it from here to remove all traces of the trial version before reinstalling.

Thanks, but i already did this so many times, uninstall Office manually,
then i installed the full version from the CD/DVD, the annoying thing still showup!
I even use a software to completelly uninstall and erase everything from Office
and still the same.

What happens if you go to The Office Programs in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office2007\Office12\ WINWORD.EXE and run Word there?

This is the root location of my installation:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\WINWORD.exe

I tried running Word from there but still showing the:

In your original question you meant:
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1 ?

The 14.0 version is for Word 2010 installs

Did you run the Fixit tool to uninstall?

I was expecting to find a Microsoft Fix on the site you sent me, but...
there was just some kind of explanation on how to deal with that.

Hello again MASQUERAID,
just wanted to double ask you...
The Microsoft Fix are not for resolving the problem i am having right...
Yeah, this Fix are just to uninstall Office in case the user is having problems
uninstalling it from the control panel, but i already did, the Fix is taking a while
uninstalling Office, which i already uninstalled before and re-installed again...
but i am going to try one more time, but i don't think this Fix will take care my main problem.

Not conviced either but I suspect between the Original Office Trial and the installation of your full version one or more of the registry entries for Office has been damaged.  Hoping the FixIt will remove all the Office entries as well as the programs so you can start again.

You right, i am done with the Fix...
I thought the computer was gonna be restarted after the Fix, but it did not.
so i will use CCleaner to do some registry cleaning and some other files cleaning
and i'll try to re-install office again to see what do i get this time.
