New laptop running Win 7 Home Premium.
Installed Microsoft Office 2000 (including Excel (which I own)). That started messing files up immediately because the mach came with MS Ofc 2010 demo version.
Un-installed the MS Office 2010 demo and the 2000 version Excel, Word etc. were running just fine. Now, no matter how I start it I get:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error

To translate the above it reads:
"Hey dummy! Your software is too bloomin' old! When are you gonna pay the piper and upgrade!!!"

Anybody got a patch or other solution for this?

You could try and run the .exe file for each office program under Windows XP SP2 mode, its pretty easy to find just right click the .exe and go to properties.
