    Perhaps you need more ram. Tell us the OS and ram you have, and wait long if the disk drive is going.

    Are you the original owner of the Office 2007. Microsoft sometimes stalls any launch if they suspect the software has been prevsiously registered, especially with 2007.
    You might also want to go to Microsoft Updates while using Internet Explorer 6 or 7, and allow microsoft to scan your system to install any available 2007 updates.

    hmmmm...what version of office 07 is it, ex: student, standarnd, professional, because only the student version allows more than one install, so depending on which version you are running, this might be what is causing the problem.
