Okay, so whenever I try to open ANY office applications, my mac (version 10.6.8) brings up a screen title MICROSOFT _____ cannot be opened because of a problem. I cannot uninstall it, because the uninstaller does not open either. The Microsoft Office 2008 folder is in my Applications folder.


Here are the problem details:
