There's probably an office file still hidden which's preventing proper install. Depending on your os; try control panel/add remove/ Miscrosoft office, and delete. If it's not showing there use find/search and type in Office and delete any files, reboot and then turn off all non-vital b/g progs and install.

put your office cd in the drive, then wait about ten seconds for autorun to kick in. if you hear the music but nothing appears then office is already installed, you then need to right click on your cd drive and choose "open", look for the icon "setup" double click setup icon, once it opens choose repair, follow on-screen instructions

if it autoruns then choose install, follow on-screen instructions.

good luck, come back if you have problems

try to Uninstall office again, then

make sure your office cd is in the cdrom drive

double click My Computer

Right Click on Office CDROM drive and choose open

browse to


look for a file called OFFCLN9

run this file, it should clean any stray office files

then eject and re-insert cd, office should now install correctly

hope this works for you
