I got infected with Windows Vista Recovery and managed to rid myself of it with Malwarebytes but certain files were hidden with folders saying "empty". I corrected the with unhide.exe but now none of my Office 2007 applications will open. When I click a word file for instance, Windows installer opens up then says "The feature you are trying to use is on a network that is unavailable. Files were opening before I ran unhide.

I don't have the disk to reinstall office.

Any thoughts?

You could try downloading/installing all applicable SPs for that version of Office...you never know what files may be damaged.

Try going into Programs and Features and running the Repair from the installed programs list. It may fix your problem.
