Windows 7: Office 2007 Bootstrap Error

Office 2007 Bootstrap Error

I have been running Office 2007 on a Windows 7 machine for 2 plus years with no issues. Just recently I have had trouble launching Outlook or once launched it stops responding. I ran the Office diagnostic tool and it was unable to complete due to a Bootstrap file missing. I tried to reinstall Office using the Repair setting and it failed too.

Any ideas of what to do next?
