If you're not using Works then just go into the control panel and try to uninstall it, if that doesn't take care of the message, write back and I'll give you some more tips.

Best of luck!

Why has it stopped working?


Apparently in some cases all you need to do is start Excel/Word/Powerpoint/Outlook as Administrator in order to get permissions to do something on the computer. If you're using Windows 7, right-click the application in the Start Menu and click "Run as administrator". See if this works for you.

In Windows 8, open the Home screen, find the application you're trying to open; right-click it and select "Open as administrator" at the bottom.
. If you are still experiencing the issue I can suggest this program Excel Repair Toolbox

Customize microsoft works


MS Works is an all-in-one application. You would need to install the entire package.
A better choice would be to go with Google and use their (FREE!) calendar. It will integrate into many apps and is more up-to-date than MSWorks, which has been discontinued by Microsoft.

I am having trouble with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007


This article describes how to troubleshoot problems that you may experience when you try to activate a 2007 Microsoft Office application. Additionally, this article contains several methods that you can use to troubleshoot activation issues.

This article is intended for a beginning to intermediate computer user.

You may experience the problems in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1
When you try to activate a Microsoft 2007 Office suite, you may experience one of the following symptoms:
  • You receive the following error message:Your software cannot be activated because the product key you installed with is not valid. Please uninstall the software and reinstall it using a valid product key.
  • The activation process fails. Additionally, you receive a message that states that you have reached the limit on the number of computers on which you can activate the 2007 Office suite.
Scenario 2
When you successfully started a 2007 Office application and all functions worked correctly for you in the past, you receive an error message. The error message indicates that significant changes were made to the configuration of the computer. In addition to this error message, you may also experience any of the following symptoms:
  • When you try to activate the 2007 Office suite, the Activation Wizard disappears.
  • When you try to to activate the 2007 Office suite over the Internet, you receive a communications-related error.
  • When you try to activate a 2007 Office suite , the Activation Wizard does not start. Additionally, you receive no error messages.

Scenario 3
You try to activate the 2007 Office suite over the phone. However, after you enter the confirmation ID that the support staff supplied to you, you receive an error message. The error message states that the confirmation ID is invalid.

Scenario 4
When you successfully started a 2007 Office application and all functions worked correctly for you in the past, the 2007 Office application now runs in a reduced functionality mode.

Scenario 5
When you start a 2007 Office Trial version for the first time after you complete License Activation, the 2007 Office Trial version runs in a reduced functionality mode, and the Office Activation Wizard is displayed. Additionally, the following text is displayed:

2007 Office system is expired. In this expired state, many features of the version are unavailable until you convert to the full product. Click Convert to begin the conversion process.

Note This activation problem indicates that the Opa12.dat file is corrupt for the 2007 Office application. Scenario 6
When you try to obtain an activation key for a trial version of the 2007 Microsoft Office system over the Internet, you receive the following error message:The Microsoft Activation Assistant was unable to request your trial activation key
This issue is temporary until the updated version of Try Microsoft Office 2007 is available. Microsoft is in the process of updating Try Microsoft Office 2007 based on the January 2010 update for Office Word.

It says office application version does not match every time I open my documents.


Firstly
***

When opening a Microsoft Office program or file you may get a message that says “Office Application Version Does Not Match Error”. This is most likely caused by having the Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager installed on your computer. Many computers that come with the Office trial program installed will have this on their computer from when it was new.

There are a couple of ways to get rid of this error. First you can install the update from Microsoft that gets rid of the error.

Or you can go into Add and Remove Programs (XP) or Programs and Features (Vista) and uninstall the Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager if you don ’t use it. It won’t affect any of your Office programs. You may get a message during the uninstall process that it can’t remove it from your Outlook profile but just click Ok and finish the uninstall.

*************
or

*******
Bit of an odd one this error message. It is issued when you start Microsoft Word 2007 (or indeed Excel 2007, PowerPoint 2007 or Publisher 2007) on a computer that has Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager installed. You can download a a patch that will stop this error message appearing here.


Hope this will solve your problem

Message: internal error occured pops up.


You will have to uninstall everything that is made by adobe. Adobe flash player, adobe active x. After unstalling that, that should let you put the adobe reader back. Then download the other program I mention earlier.

Anytime Organizer Problems


You could try using 'map network drive' to create a drive letter reference for your network file location. I don't know what operating system you're using, but you should be able to find this option in Windows Explorer.

Select a drive letter that you're not likely to use for anything else (such as X), and enter the path to the file you're trying to use.
( //<your server>/.../ ).

Once this is done you can refer to the file as X:/<your file name> instead of //<your server>/../<your file name>

I hope this helps, let me know if you need any more detail on this!

Office 2007 Install Problems


It can be very aggravating to reinstall Office; you probably need to use the free removal tool that Microsoft provides for situations like yours. It may have nothing to do with Office 2007 and everything to do with whatever else you added via Add/Remove Programs. My best advice is patience; Office12 is huge, and takes a long time to put all its junk in there; Microsoft will walk you through it if you have patience with their tech support folks and time to wait on hold to reach someone. The good news is they get paid to sit with frustrated folks like you. If you can be more sprcific what the error message(s) say(s) that will help whomever could help you get to the root cause of your issue(s).
