Windows 7: Word installation acting strange

Word installation acting strange

Hi all
I'm running Windows 7 with Office 2003 and Office 2007 Home and Student.
I keep them both as I receive documents from work in both formats.
Both have been working flawlessly for 2 years.
Lately when I open a word document, instead of opening, the set up routine launches.
I have tried to re associate the word document and set Word 2007 as the default but no matter what it still launches the set up program.
Any ideas???

Hi Warewasher,

While researching, I came across another 'Microsoft thread' with a similar issue: Office 2007 Configuration wizard runs every time I start any Application (word, excel, etc). Suggested solutions seems to have worked for many users; you may find it useful.
