I have 2010 office pro installed. Everytime I open it through a document or though start bar, the appropriate 2010 application begins to open. But then, I get the please wait while 2003 install wizard configures. I have to cancel out of the 2003 wizard several times, but I do get to 2010 eventually. Any ideas how to get the 2003 install attempts to stop.

    Absolutely - there should not be two Office installations active on the same machine.

    I have to agree with that.  There should not be 2 versions of Office running on the same machine as they will conflict.  I would uninstall Office 2007, after backing up your data files and Outlook PST file.  Run a good registry cleaner to remove all traces of the Office 2007 install because uninstalling does not remove all traces of it.  Check to make sure that there is no Office 2003 installed and if there is, uninstall that and remove all traces of that with a good registry cleaner.  Verify in the startup and the registry that both versions are gone.  Then reinstall Office 2007.

    Sometimes Outlook may need to be re-installed or repaired in order to fix certain problems. The problem may have started after upgrading Outlook, installing add-ins, or other possible changes on your system
