microsoft office enterprise 2007 encountered an error during setup

I got the error in the title of this but no other errors.  None of the KB articles was relevant.

I fixed  it by removing anything related to the Microsoft Office Document Converter that allowed me to open docx and xlsx file.

I uninstalled the Microsoft Office Document Converter but that failed so I had to use the Windows Installer Clean-up utility to remove it.
I deleted everything from the Program File/Microsoft Office/12.0 folder.  In my case there was some Visual Studio stuff there which I left in place.
I  also deleted the keys in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\ which ended in 01FEC (for example 000021091A0090400000000000F01FEC) which were related to Office 2007 (Thanks to McTheNite)

Is this a new computer? If so is there a Trial version of Office 2007 installed?
