the application failed to start because of its side-by-side configuration

I have a computer that after it locked up in Microsoft Word 2007, now all applications we try to launch comes up with:

the application failed to start because of its side-by-side configuration is incorrect

Even in safe mode logged into as admin...

It is running Windows 7 64-bit.  

I really do not want to have to reinstall if possible. I have looked through several of the fixes on this site, but they seem to address just one app.  I can't run any app.

(a). Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue, and then replace the file. To do this, follow these steps:

    Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
    Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

sfc /scannow

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Ended up backing up data, formatting the drive and reloading W7.  Thanks for the suggestions just didn't have time to see if there was a fix.
