Have you heard solutions to your question. I think I am having the same
problem or a similar problem. When I try to start Excel, it says that it is
trying to Install. I can't get any of my spreadsheets to open. I also had
the same problem while I was working in Word the other day. I was able to
work in it, but the install window kept coming up. I have tried to
re-install office, but it won't let me. When it tries to uninstall it first,
it comes up with a message saying a patch is missing. I tried to go to the
Microsoft website to do some updates, but it won't let me. It comes up with
this message.

Windows Installer patch files (.MSP files) from previously applied Office
updates are missing from the \Windows\Installer hidden directory on your
computer. MSP files are stored on your computer after update installation
completes because they need to be referenced for future update operations. If
the files are missing you will not be able to apply Office updates. You may
also be unable to uninstall Office products as a result of the same problem.
Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for assistance.

I'm not sure what to do next.
