Run the MS Office removal tool, then install fresh copy. You should have no problems. Be aware it can take several minutes to run.

Try the following:

1. Run SFC. Open an admin command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW twice. Allow to complete, close out and restart the computer. Now test again.

2. I do not like or recommend Revo Uninstall in difficult situations. But it may be worth a try to remove the old Office. If it is successful, restart and try installing Office 2013

3. If all else fails, run Windows 7 Repair Install. You need the Windows DVD for this. Here is a Seven Forums Tutorial to assist you with this.

Almost forgot.... the above removal tool will remove office versions up to 2010.
