MS Office 64-Bit is probably not a good idea.  Even MS says so.  Try the 32-bit version, I have successfully installed on over a hundred Windows 7 Enterprise 32-Bit & 64-Bit.

Uninstall first using Microsoft Fix It. Restart. Then install the 32 bit version.
So why they do sell 64 bit versions?

I've installed W7/64 bit and Office 2010 64 bit without problems. BUT nothing was installed in between these two software packages...

They sell both versions (to make money ;-)) but advise that 32 bit version is what they recommend you to install. If you don't know why you'd have 64 bit version, then you should install 32 bit version.  ;-)

Anyways, here is what you need to try:

(1) Repair Office.

(2) Uninstall Office using Microsoft Fix It or the manual method; restart; and reinstall the 64 bit version you have if you want to keep it.
