Windows 7: Office Runs through the configuration process every time I launch it

Office Runs through the configuration process every time I launch it

Hi guys.

I have this error where, when trying to run an office program (Example: Word), it runs through the configuration process for a few minutes. I don't quite know what's going on?
Closing word and re-opening does the same thing over and over. Once the configuration process finishes, it launches it to the application just fine. The only thing annoying me is the huge wait time. Please help guys.

Do you need system specs? You can find them here:
Once at the link, go to: "System Specs"

EDIT: I did have a look on the forums and online and couldn't find a solution. Thanks for helping guys.
EDIT2: I have never installed office 2007 on the computer/hard drive.
