Exclamation Really need help with Excel- PLEASE READ!!

Hiya!

I'm doing an ICT course at my local college and have a test involving spreadsheets and pie charts next week. The only problem is whenever I try and open Excel to do some practice it starts something called Windows installer, it then says 'gathering information', seconds later I am told I need to insert the office 200 disc in order for it to work!

This never happened before, I never need any discs to access the stuff usually. It seems to have happened ever since Windows installer started coming up. Windows installer also comes up when I first log onto the PC, it was looked at by a local engineer and the message has appeared ever sice.

Is there any way of disabling Windows install, I don't want it to come up every time I log on, especially seen as it's not installing anything!

Any help appreciated- this exam is pretty important!

Thanks for the links- I've had a look.

I wanted to download Orktools.exe, I went to the website and found info on it, however there didn't seem to be a link to download. It may just be me being stupid but I couldn't see anything.

Could anyone do a direct link?

I couldn't find a link to download Windows installer cleanup either...
