Windows 7: Microsoft Office 2010 not installing.

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Microsoft Office 2010 not installing.

Trying to install Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student on a brand new computer, went through the process with no problems so when it finished it wanted me to restart, so I did and when it restarted absolutely nothing, no word, excel anything except the same installation startup software so I tried again and this time it came up with some starter version of word and excel...thats it, no proper programs just rubbish, no outlook, publisher or powerpoint. Decided to restart thinking it just a glitch and now all I've got is Onenote. Given up after 2 hours of being annoyed at every step trying to get it to work.

Any help is appreciative.

win 7 X64 Ultimate SP1
Failed Install

MS Office can be a bear.

If you have a failed install you probably have files and reg entries in your system which might prevent you from getting a good install.

I am not familiar with home and student but some flavors of Office have a repair option. You can go to programs and features in the control panel and right click on Office and see if it offers a repair. It may require inserting the install disk in the rom deck.

Another option is to insert the install disk and you may find a repair option.

Any way I found some good info from MS if you have to do an uninstall and cleanup before reinstalling.
