Simple permission problem. right click file and "take ownership". May have to do that in safe mode (F8)

From the pics it looks like you haven't installed an Office application. if you do not have paid ms office i would advise to use open office. Once you have installed office application. it should work

You can download open office from the following link:
download: OpenOffice.org Downloads
