Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

This can be due to corruption in either the registry or hard drive and I want to rule this out first please.

Download CC Cleaner (free) from here

CC Cleaner

(Click Download Latest Version on the top right)

Run it and let it scan and repair your registry.

Once done, restart the computer

Than

Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator.

A black window will open.

Type in it

sfc /scannow

press enter and when it has completed, type in

chkdsk /f

Press enter.

It will complain the Volume is in use and to run on restart. Say YES and restart the computer

Than try to open Office and let me know please if you still have the problem.

Thank you

Sorry did all you asked but when running chkdsk/f it only reisterd up to 78% en could not complete 100%. When clicking on excel the following messages appeared:


Windows instaler thereafter preparing to install and then Wait until windows cobfigures microsoft office standard 2007 and finaly error 1606 could not acces network location.

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
The fact that chkdsk could not complete is a serious problem.

When did this problem start?

It started about 3 weeks ago after updates from windows. I did change the date to n day before the download but no success

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
Thanks, then windows has corrupted.

We have tried to repair it, but this is not possible.

You are going to need to do a reinstall of windows in order to remove this issue.

We should be able to do this from the hard disk, so can you please first backup any data you need to keep as this removes all data from your computer (Applications you will need to install again).

And then tell me please what Brand your computer is.

Thank you
