Can't use Microsoft Office 2010

When ever I start a Microsoft Office 2010 application I always get an error. It's Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student.

Excel- "Not enough memory to start Excel. Please close other applications and try again"
Word- Crashes as soon as I start it
OneNote- "OneNote cannot start because the Microsoft Office installation is missing the required files. Run Office setup again to repair the installation"
PowerPoint- Splash screen flashes and nothing else happens

I have also tried going to install and clicking repair but it still doesn't work.

Can somebody please help me.

Thanks in advance

How much drive space do you have available?

You can get this error if your hard drive is getting towards being full.

Also, how much RAM do you have?

Whenever you post a new thread it always helps if you also post your full computer specifications.

Office 2010 works. There is something wrong with either your system itself or your current installation of Office.

Easiest thing is to de-install Office and start over from scratch. De-installing is not simple - see this article for how to do it:
