Constant setting up

I purchased and installed Office Professional Plus 2007 ( student Version) and everytime I try to open any file, Word, Excel, and file related to Office 2007
I get a configuring window that pop's up and tells me it setting up or configuring the program.

Usually this problem occurs if the Office installation goes corrupt, due to multiple versions of office installed in the machine.
Step 1: Remove Multiple/trial Versions of Office Suites:

1. Click Start, click Run, type control appwiz.cpl, and then press ENTER to open the Add or Remove Programs window.
2. Check for multiple/trial versions of Office & uninstall them.
If the problem still persists, go to the next steps.

Step2: Add the registry key
