Windows 7: MSOffice Pro Plus 2010 Configuring after opening Applications

MSOffice Pro Plus 2010 Configuring after opening Applications

Very often but not always when I open an Office Application, a configuration window opens immediately after the application window and takes some time to configure the application window before closing.

It is only after the configuration window has closed that I can start using the application window. This was not happening when I was running Office 2010 on the Windows XP platform.

There is Chapter and Verse about this problem on the Net but I couldn't find any real solution.

Please help me to stop this peculiar behaviour.

Someone found solution here:
Office 2010 Professional Plus configures each time I launch - FIXED!

This is how I fixed it:
Using Regedit to locate the key for .msg, when accessing Permissions, I got an error message, but ignored that. Open the Permissions window, and click on the "Advanced" button.

Then select the "Owner" tab, and set the owner as "Adminstrators". Click Apply and OK.

Close Regedit, and Run Outlook, the Configuration process will run. Then close Outlook.

Open Regedit again, and locate the same Classes/.msg key. You should now see a number of sub keys.

For each sub key
, right click on it to select Permissions.
Click on the "Advanced" button, and then the "Owner" tab, and set the owner as "Administrators", and click Apply and OK.

On the security tab, click on the Add button. Add "SYSTEM" as a new user, and put a tick next to "Full Control". Click Apply and OK, and you should then see other users added.

Repeat the above for all sub keys.

Close Regedit, and reboot.

I then found that not only Outlook would run without the configuration loop, but all other applications in the Office 2010 suite also ran properly using all the proper shortcuts in All Programs.

Not sure yet but I suppose that it did. Will have to wait some more to be 100% sure.

New applications opening under current window
I don't know quite how to describe this problem other than saying that when I open a new window (office, or any other software), it will open up but appear underneath whatever other window I have focused already.
