Error message when trying to open any Office prog.

Lost my Office program after repair/clean install

Version:Office 2007
Operating System:Windows 7 64 bit


Im getting the following error message:

ERROR: This package could not be opened. Contact the appplication vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer update package.

I recently had serious problems with my PC and had to do a clean install, I was told that it would keep all my files and documents and repair any problem with windows (windows 7 64 bit) But after doing this is seem I have lost all my microsoft office programs. I get the following error message when I try to open these programs.

Thanks in advance,

Zoz

Can you see Microsoft Office listed from - Start, then All programs?

If so, touch Microsoft Office, then Microsoft Office Tools. Next Microsoft Office Diagnostics. Press continue to allow Diagnostics to try to Detect and hopefully Repair your installation.
