Issue with Office 2007 Excel

I recently migrated data and programs to another laptop, using an application called ZInstall.  Both the original and target notebooks are running Windows 7 Professional SP-1.  The target laptop already had Office 360 installed, which I don't want to use.  

My Office 2007 had an issue with launching configuration when a Word document was opened.  This was corrected with a registry modification:
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\excel\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1

However, the same issue occurs with Excel, and it was not resolved with a similar registry edit.  Running Office Repair did not resolve it, either.  It is not possible to uninstall or reinstall Office 2007, and I think this is a known issue when SP-1 is installed on Windows 7.

If you know of a solution, please advise.  However, to save everyone time, please understand that I don't want to change operating systems or software.  I just want to get Excel 2007 to work, if it is possible.
