Office 2013 Something went wrong

I'm having a weird problem with Office 2013 Home & business.
after installing, MS Office runs fine until the computer is rebooted. Once rebooted, we are getting a "something went wrong" error when launching any office product.
I can preform a repair and that will work but only until the next reboot.
I have uninstalled all AV programs - no change. I've ran all updates - no change.
I've scanned hard drives - no errors found. I've ran SFC - no change.
I am at a loss on this one.
I have 5 licenses and am installing office on 5 separate computers.
4 of the computers are new - out of the box dells. one is an older HP.
out of the 5 only one is not having this problem (no its not the HP).
I'm also not seeing much in the way of error messages,
Oh and we are running Windows 7 pro - 64bit and it is attached to a domain.
I dont really have much in the way of domain policies. and I am installing with local admin rights.

Ive researched this but cant really find anyone whos having the same problem.
A couple have had drive issues and replacing the HD resolved the problem but, I dont think that applies here.

Does anyone have any thoughts/ideas?

Try the following:

Once more uninstall the Anti Virus program. What is it by the way?

Now uninstall Office 2013 completely.

Restart the computer and check for normal operation. Take great care - no AV at this point.

Install Office 2013 and patch up to date. Does it work?

Now install your Anti Virus. Is all still working?

I have Office 2013 on Windows 7 and on Windows 8.1

AV is Kaspersky Security Center.
I will try and let you know.

Kaspersky has had some issues with newer products. See if Office runs without it (use great care) and if so, look for the newest Kaspersky download. I needed the newest Symantec 12 "a" version to run on Windows 8.1
