Can't open documents on Sharepoint Online with Office 2007

I have a user that is using Office 2007 Small Business. Up until yesterday morning she could open her documents on our SharePoint Online without issue. Suddenly, however, it is giving her the error seen in the attached picture. I have tried running a repair, fully uninstalling and re-installing Office, and resetting IE back to factory settings. I have tried under my login and my windows profile with the same results. It happens to all Office document types on SharePoint Online. She can open Word, Excel etc documents on her hard drive without issue.

Can you check if your sharepoint online has changed location?
https://ssmcmicrosoftonlinecom-4.sharepoint.microsoftonline.com
will redirect you now to
https://login.microsoftonline.com
so try typing
portal.office.com and logging on via your credentials
or
https://login.microsoftonline.com

You may have to share those documents again so that the links do exist

Unfortunately, the rest of the users can access the link fine. I was able to fix it by uninstalling Office 2007 and installing Office 2010. I've found more and more inconsistencies with Office 2007 and SharePoint as the years go on. I'm going to chalk it up to that.

Thanks!

The other comment, while helpful, did not solve the problem. Only installing a new version fixed the problem.
