Office 2010 runs product configuration when opening Word and Excel
Just started using a new workstation with Office 2010 installed by OEM. Everything worked fine for a few days, and then every time i attempt to open a Word file or Excel file i get the MS Office dialog box that states "please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2010". The dialog box stays visible for 30-45 seconds and then the program opens and works fine.
Ran a repair, four times, didn't fix it.
All of my research leads me to a solution of uninstalling and re-installing. I'm not buying that if everything worked fine for several days, that a bad install will make the program stop functioning properly.
I also noticed, while visiting help within outlook, that the product was still a trial version and not currently activated. I have entered the activation code numerous times with no luck.
Any suggestions? This is becoming extremely inefficient.

When I right click as administrator I do not have an option to run as administrator.
I have also tried the Microsoft arcticle suggestions, except for reinstall, and no sucess. I would like to try the reinstall but the computer did not come with a disk. I tried to download the program from microsoft but only found a 32 bit version, and my computer stopped me from installing it since i have 64-bit. Then I looked at the Office version installed on my PC and it shows a 32-bit version.
