Good Morning

I tidied up my harddrive to give me a little more space and speed and think I may have deleted something important! I cannot open any of the office programmes without getting a message "Microsoft Office *** has not been installed for the current user. Please sun set-up to install the application"

I have searched for a solution on line.

.I followed Microsofts advise but found the security settings were all as they should be for explorer.
.Everyone has full control on the OPA11.dat file.
.I copied an older version of MSO.DLL over the top of the current version.
.I deleted OPA11.dat
.I repaired office from the disk
.I repaired office from the Microsoft menu
.I uninstalled office completely and reinstalled
.I uninstalled office completely again. Re-booted. Cleaned the registry. Rebooted again. Cleaned the registry again. Rebooted. Reinstalled Office from the disk
.I set up a new user account

I can now use office under the new user name but would like to use my old user account. What more can I do?

Please help
