stdole32.tlb error

    Each time I run Excel 2007 on Windows Vista, an error window would pop up
    with the word 'stdole32.tlb'. When I click the 'OK' button, Excel goes into
    re-installation. I've done an internet search, and realised that this is a
    common problem.

    How can I fix it?

    this is a stab but in Vista you will get continuous pop-ups like this until
    you log on as an administrator (even if you signed on as one) to explicitly
    re-run the setup. Try right clicking the Excel.exe file and select run as
    administrator, if you are logged on as one it will pop up the User Access
    Control dialog and ask you to confirm the action, if you are not it will ask
    for a logon and password before this. Allow the error to happen and run the
    setup as this logon. Once completed this should fix it.

    I solved the problem by reinstalling office 2007, but it's not the real
    solution i think. I can't uninstall 2007, because then the errors occurs in
    office 2003 again.

    my problem is also that, the .docx or .doc documents or other office files
    are not seen by office word. I mean, i must right click and then choose the
    word as default program to run it but the icon of .doc files still seems
    they're not default for word. Also, normally when right click and new there
    must be new office word document or excel or powerpoint document but again
    they are not there. I reinstalled lots of times but again the same problem.
    The office programs work fine though. that's weird.

    there Click on the Fix it Icon and Run it on your Computer . That Will completely take Off you Microsoft Office From your Computer then Simply reinstall the software . this Will fix the issue.
