Windows 7: MS Office setup.exe not responding

MS Office setup.exe not responding

Hi, forum i have this problem: Ever since i installed the MS Office (few month ago), it won't let me open Word documents. (Some installer appears with storno button only. When i click storno, it lags. Then i have to kill it using task manager and when i try to open the document next time, it asks me if i want to open Word in safe mode, and in safe mode it works.)

So, i had just enough of this procedure and wanted to reinstall the office, but everytime i run the SETUP.EXE from the office DVD, it falls ("instance has stopped working - close program")

Does anyone know how to fix this?

PS: Recently, the office icons disappeared from the .ppt etc. files (it shows just some broken icon, but the office programs are still associated with it)
PS2: I had the same problem in Windows Vista.
