how to stop windows installed from popping up

Each time I login to my computer(to windows domain), then start MS Outlook 2010, windows installer comes up, it is like installing and configuring MSoffice from scratch.
I am not sure why this is happening. I have not tried to repair or re-install MSOffice yet. I though that there might be an easy fix for it.

Any help will be very much appreciated

Thanks

I haven't seen this with Outlook specifically, but it occurs when you have more than one version of Office installed and use applications from more than one version of Office. Do you have older or newer versions of Outlook, Excel, Word, Access, Powerpoint?

Another thing to do is make sure you have all components of Office installed. It is no big deal to uninstall and reinstall Office.

Uninstall Office 2010, uninstall any other prior components or versions of Office as noted above. Restart the computer and install Office 2010 again. Make sure all components are installed. I think that has become default with Office 2010 but do check.

Is it trying to install Language Packs or other add-in needed for your documents?

Even so, then it should have done one time only instead of each time I open up MSoutlook

Set up a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new account and test Office. If it works in a new Account, then the existing user account is damaged and needs to be re-created.
