Thank you for the response. Yes, a Sony Viao technician provided me with the first two links. Neither one worked in resolving the error. I actually had a Microsoft technician attempt to fix the issue through remote desktop. He deleted all key registries associated with office but still had no luck in resolving the issue. He stated that they are going to research the issue and scheduled a date to contact me. I was able to load office 2007 from the disk onto my sons laptop so I know there is not any issues with the disk itself.
