Hi, this is an error that does occur sometimes. Follow the below to resolve it

If Word Starter 2010 or Excel Starter 2010 cannot be opened, uninstall and reinstall Microsoft Office Starter 2010:

  1. Click Start (or Start > Run in Windows XP)
  2. Type appwiz.cpl, and then press Enter.
  3. Before going any further, make sure you see Microsoft Office 2010 in the list of installed programs. You'll need to use this program later to reinstall Office Starter 2010 on the computer.
  4. Click Microsoft Office Starter 2010, and then click Uninstall (or Remove in Windows XP).
