    I installed Microsoft Office 2010 on my netbook when I bought it in December of 2011. I have never had a problem with it until today. When trying to start Word (or any Office program), I now get the installer pop up saying "wait while installing Microsoft Single Image 2010" or something to that effect. Then error 1706 pops up saying it can't find singleimageww.msi. I can not find my product key anywhere to try an uninstall/reinstall. I am a college student and can not be without my Office, as I have weekly essays for my composition class. Please help direct me the right way!

    Here is my Sysinfo log. Thanks in advance.

    I had something similar happen to me with office 2010 professional. Did you make any kind of changes to the security of your C: drive (or whatever drive you have office installed in)?? This is what caused my similar problem. Try to right click on your system drive, click properties, select Security tab and make sure that the right permissions are set. Make sure SYSTEM has full control. If everything seems normal, find your Microsoft Office folder under c:\program files and check those security settings. Pay particular attention to your user account and make sure its there with full permission if not add yourself. Hope this helps
