All you tell: "i tries to re-install office 2007..a number of time but it showed an error".

That's not much. Not even information about the error. All I can say: clean up the old install as described in
If that isn't enough, try the Windows installer cleanup utility from, but note that Microsoft doesn't recommend to use it for Office 2007.

Then be ready for the big choice:

1. Don't use MS Office. Switch to Open Office.
2. Reinstall your OS. MS Office should surely install on a nice clean newly installed OS.
