Auslogic has a good reg cleaner. CCleaner has a decent one also.
Try that then reinstall Office. If no joy then your best bet is to contact M$ Office support.

Right Ok guys NONE of those solutions worked.... There is clearly an underlying problem. I mean the registry is like.... Screwed? But I don't know what I have ever done to it! This is really strange.

hmmm. I think this is a good change to give Google Drive a chance.
You really should look into it. it only needed less then 1 hour to convince me to ditch MS office.

I will certaintly look into it! The only downside with that is is that I can't access it inside the school network #restrictions.

None the less. What should I do about my current PC's registry state?

GREAT! This totally worked for me. I went to the registry key and subkey that was causing me trouble and set the permissions properly. This worked!

I therefore tried the installation again and it keeps on bumping into different registry subkeys that I apparently do not have permission to.

I constantly go to these keys and open them up and set the permissions properly. I always find I have to go straight to the subkey as if I just go to the key and set the permissions for that key and the subkeys I get this message:

Why could this be the case? What do I need to do to fix this??

Because of this message I have to keep going to the subkey and setting the permissions up there. This will take forever as Office seems to keep bumping into registry keys that it needs allowed into... Solutions?

hmmm.
have you tried the trick on the "one step up" folder? (the folder called "container")
remember to hit the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" checkbox.
