    I think you dont have enough space in your hard drive.

    Do you have free space in your hard drive where you installed ms office?

    Do you encounter the same error when you try to open excel or ppt files?

    Did you try to open it from the application in the start menu or by double clicking the file?

    Assuming that you encounter that disk space error when you try to open any saved word,excel or powerpoint file.

    Did you try to reinstall it again?

    why do you want to use 2007 version when there is newer version(2010) available?

    You have to rename the global template to resolve this issue.

    Note: Renaming the template resets several options back to their default settings, including custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries. Therefore, Microsoft strongly recommends that you rename the template instead of deleting it.

    Certain installations may yield more than one legitimate file. These situations include multiple versions of Microsoft Word that are running on the same computer or several workstation installations on the same computer. In these situations, pay special attention so that you rename the correct copy of

    The default location for the global template ( is the following, depending on your operating system.

    For Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, and Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me):
    C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
    For Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Millennium Edition (Me) with profiles turned on:
    C:\Windows\Profiles\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Template
    For Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
    Hope this helps! 😀
