Office 2010 programs wont install / lauch after install

one of my co-workers wants me to get rid of some viruses and install office 2010 home and student on her computer with the key she bought. her computer runs windows 7 64-bit. after backing up her data, i finally ended up doing a factory reinstall from the backup partition. so i downloaded all windows updates and installed antivirus and firewall software. then i downloaded the office 2010 trial and tried to install it. it seems to begin installing without any problems. then a splash screen for powerpoint appears. it says that its "processing" and does that for about 20 minutes and then there is a balloon that pops up saying that office is downloading files. after all that happens, an error message appears that says something like "powerpoint cannot be opened. please try again later or repair this software in the control panel" with no sort of error code. i then tried repairing it from control panel which claims to complete successfully. so i restart and try to install again and the same thing happens all over again. if i try opening word, excel, powerpoint or onenote the splash screen appears and does the same thing that i described powerpoint was doing. ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. i also tried installing the 60 day trial for office 2007 that came preloaded with the computer and then installing office 2010 over it. same thing happened. im really stuck on this one. i would really appreciate some help as ive never seen this kind of thing before. thanks guys

With the number of problems there I would suggest going back to scratch & starting all over again.

Ben,
If you do return again to the Manufacturers Recovery Install it would be advisable to remove the preinstalled Office 2007 before installing Office 2010.

I tried that already. Office 2007 doesnt come installed already but the setup is there to install it. I went into control panel and removed the setup without ever installing office 2007 but the same thing happens regardless.
