I had a similar issue installing Office a few years back on Vista. Try copying the contents of the Microsoft Office 2007 disc to a folder on your hard disk.

Right click the setup file and click Run as Administrator and see if it installs then.

You disc might be dirty or corrupted, try downloading a copy of the edition you own and reattempt installation:

Professional 2007 

Home and Student 2007 

Standard 2007 

Small Business 2007


Also make sure that your Antivirus utility is temporarily disabled.
