    The Office 2007 icon on my start menu inexplicably became nonfunctiona
    this week. I'm running Vista Home Premium x32. I tried uninstallin
    Office 2007, but I get the message: "Setup could not find any availabl
    products to install. Please contact your system administrator." If
    try to reinstall using the original disc, I get the message: "Setup ha
    stopped working." I've tried to follow the instructions at 'How t
    uninstall the 2007 Office system if you cannot uninstall it by using th
    \"Add or Remove Programs\" feature
    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218/en-us) for uninstalling withou
    using the add/remove program, but I am unable to go to any "choos
    details" menu on the view tab ... it doesn't exist, so I can't continu
    the instructions from there. I don't have a second drive to tr
    installing the disc from there. The disc is brand-new, not dirty o
    damaged. I've defragged the computer. How can I get this working again

    If you are able to start Word, select the repair option in Help

    I ran Diagnostics, which is the repair option in Word 2007 ... and it is
    one of the only things I can access in Word right now. The suggested
    "fix" is to install updates, which I did, but it doesn't fix anything at
    all. My guess -- based on online posts regarding the same problem -- is
    that when I tried to uninstall Word 2007, traces of it were left, and
    that is what is not allowing me to reinstall from the disc. Any other
    suggestions, anyone?

    Grab Revo Uninstaller, it is Free. Choose the Aggressive mode and it
    will find every Reg Key and let you delete them. The re-install.
    Before re-install, use disk clean up to delete all the TEMP files as
    well, in case something left in there.

  5. And, of course, reboot.

    Revo Uninstaller is a freeware uninstaller, which you can use to uninstall programs
    and scan after scan after uninstall for leftover registry keys, files and folders ...

    Are you sure this wasn't a trial version of Office that has now
    expired?
    If you actually paid the computer manufacturer/reseller to put
    Office on the computer they should have provided you with a way
    to back it up, not to mention a license. Contact them about your
    options.

    Sounds like Word was "bundled" with the computer ( free trial ) , now
    expired , so would have to pay for new Word licence . The licence you
    have is for Windows system .
