All my MS Office products are opening properly except Excel. Every time I open Excel it launches Windows Installer and asks for the Pro CD. I repaired it, but I still get Windows Installer on Excel only. I'm using a Windows XP computer. Can you help?

Try To Uninstall completely and Re install and Keep updating your Office Products regularly which will make sure you have all the latest patches for whatever version of Office you are using, Apart from protecting your computer from the latest email Trojans and viruses, the Office Updates also fixes problems that could cause Office programs to crash.

Firstly, in order to fix the issue, use the package provided by Microsoft to update Windows Installer. After that, completely remove Microsoft Office from your computer (Control Panel > Uninstall a program), run CCleaner to make sure that there are no leftover registry keys in your system and install it again.
