Microsoft Office keeps reconfiguring itself.

  xania 19:48 22 Sep 09

I have just reinstalled MS Office 2007 after a major PC rebuild (new Motherboard etc). Now, each time I open either Word or Excel (but not Access, Powerpoint or Publisher), I get a quick message saying 'Please wait while Windows prepares the necessary files' and then the entire system configures itself with the message 'Please wait while Windows configures MS Office Professional Plus 2007'. I can stop this and then wait for about 15 seconds then the program I want becomes available, but otherwise I have to wait up to one and a half minutes before I can access a document. And, even more frustratingly, this happens each time I have to re-open the software even if I've only just closed it down. And, of course I cannot do anything else while this is happening.

Any ideas, please.

Thanks VOG, but the problem exists when I use the 'All Programs' menu and even if I open them from the original program file in \Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12

Any one else got any ideas, please?
