Default Word 2007 launches "Configuration Process" every time

I have an odd problem. Can anyone help?
It's a long story and I won't bore you but I need to have Office 2007 (less Excel) and Excel 97 installed on my new Win 8 Pro computer.
Right now, every time I load Word 2007, I get a window titled "Configuration process" and a green progress bar. It lasts for about 30 seconds and then Word is usable.
Here's how I got here:
1. I installed Office 97.
2. I installed Office 2007.
3. I couldn't get shortcuts to Excel worksheets to Open Excel 97 so I made Excel 2007 unavailable.
4. Thereafter, every time I loaded Excel 97 I got the error message "One of your object Libraries (stdole2.tlb) is missing or damaged. Please run setup to install it."
5. I uninstalled Office 97 and reinstalled only Excel 97.
6. Now Excel 97 works as it should but I get the "Configuration Process" every time I load Word 2007.
7. I did a repair install of Office 2007 but this didn't change anything.
All other Office 2007 programs load and operate normally.
Any idea how I can get rid of the "Configuration Process"?

Sorry for the cross post. I don't normally do that but I thought this this was such an obscure problem that a second post would increase the chances of an answer. I did read your cross posting etiquette post. It was very kind of you to state the case so graciously. I'll watch my "Ps & Qs" in the future.

I did get a solution for my problem in the other post:
