tried your first option of microsoft fixit, but it failed to uninstall due to problems with windows installer how could i correct this, tried sfc but it reported no problems.

a bit worried if i try the second option i might have trouble reinstalling office, whats your opinion?

This is not problem with Windows Installer services but with installer for office! Try unofficiall remover or use System Restore if you have any good check point of course.

final straw came when todays ati driver update would not install either, wanted to fix by way of repair but now admit defeat and used windows7 own backup image recovery.

used the restore image for first time, was quick, easy and worked very well.

thanks to all who offered help.
