word 2013 - stopped working (word failed to start correctly last time...)

Hello,
i try to open an office file,
i get the error (see attached); word failed to start correctly last time...starting word in safe mode......" if i press "YES" start in safe mode - nothing happen.

i tried to repair office 2013 - didn't work.

i open word application, i get: pls wait until windows configures Microsoft office professional plus 2013.....
than: Microsoft setup bootstrupper has stopped working

after a while word application opens anyway and when i open a word file from inside the app it WORKS.

i dont want to remove and re-install office, only as my last option

thank you for any help

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

removed office, re-installed it
but !
i get the error message again, when opening a word (any office ) document i get the message (see file attached):
1. preparing to install
2. Microsoft setup bootstratper has stopped working

but the file opens...
the "bug" was solved but the error message remains ....

the only application that doesn't work is Excel,
it opens empty when i open a file.
but when i open the application and use the OPEN from within excel - it works O.K

Well, You may have to perform a manual uninstall of Ofiice 2013 (time consuming and frustrating, yes) and reinstall.
