I have had SP2 installed for a while on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit machine and also on comparable client machines with no problem.

Try an Office Repair. Go to Control Panel, click on Microsoft Office, Change and Repair.

If a repair does not work, uninstall Office, restart, install Office again (Full, not Typical except for languages you do not use), update SP1, then SP2 and patch fully.

Also make sure all Windows 7 optional updates have been done. Some of the .NET Framework updates may still be sitting in Optional.

un-install/re-install has not solved the issue, now even MS Outlook is going through the same process

The next steps are to:
1. Try a new Windows User Account (Profile). The current profile could be corrupted.
2. Run System File Checker. Run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete. Restart and check.
3. Finally, run a Windows 7 Repair Install as that may solve the problem.
