Have you tried using the Office cd and running the repair option to fix any missing or corrupted files??

Also, does it say what files are missing??

When I installed Office I noticed that it put a program/shortcut into my startup folder, kind of a preloader which supposedly helped Office load faster. I didn't think I needed it there so I deleted it with no ill effects. If that program is in your startup folder it may be causing Office to look for the missing files.
Second, Office may just be looking in the wrong folder for the files and you need to steer it to the right place. The message should tell you exactly which file it's looking for (and it may be looking for more than one) but it's looking in the wrong folder. Just find out where that file is and steer the installer there. This could easily happen if you installed Office from drive D and your cd is now in drive E. It will keep looking for the files on drive D all day.
The drop down menu should let you navigate through the various folders until you find the right one.
