Angry Corsair Force GT 120GB "Error Occurred" - BSOD --> MS Office DEATH!

I bought a pair of Corsair Force GT 120GB SSDs and set them up as a RAID-0 array for my main (OS) drive late last year.

I've been having problems with these drives intermittently with the message of "Error Occurred" in RED during boot for which I had to go into IRST and reset the drive to "Normal" after which the drive seemed okay.

In fact, last month, the boot sector was corrupted (BCD file in the "Boot" folder) and so I had to do a "repair" install and my system from then on had a "Windows 7 (recovered)" tag in the msconfig.exe window under OS.

Things worked okay but yesterday, when I turned on my computer in the morning, it booted into Windows okay but within a minute caused a BSOD (0xF4) and then I saw the dreaded "Error Occurred" message again. Once again, I used IRST to "clear" the error and reset the disk to "Normal". Upon reboot, the computer automatically ran CHKDSK (I didn't assign it to run) and it found the following (saved in a .log file on the C: drive):

Windows has finished checking your disk.
Please wait while your computer restarts.
After the CHKDSK, it booted to desktop fine and I wanted to start my work (using MS Office). When I opened Excel, I got a popup immediately with a Red "X" saying something along the lines of "Excel needs to shut down". I was like WTF so I clicked "Okay" and it shut down. I tried other MS Office programs and they too immediately gave me the popup and crashed right away.

I was using MS Office Professional Plus 2010 btw.

So, thinking that MS Office was somehow borked, I uninstalled it, ran CC-Cleaner and cleared any extraneous info related to the install and restarted the computer.

I then tried to reinstall MS Office and that's when things went REALLY BAD!

Every time I tried installing MS Office, it would go about 75% of the way and then say "Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus encountered an error during setup." I had to exit the install and it never completed. I have tried about 10 times so far to no avail. MS Office just refuses to install!

I have searched online for hours for a solution and NONE of them work. The reason I am posting this here is because all of this started with the SSD giving me that BSOD and "error". As you can see in the CHKDSK log, some files were "deleted" and some sectors were corrupt so I'm wondering if that caused MS Office to die a miserable death!

I am so frustrated because MS Office is vital to my work and I am handicapped without it. I have spent WAY TOO MUCH time on trying to fix this issue and it has lead no where. I bought these Corsair SSDs thinking they would IMPROVE overall performance and instead I've had numerous BSODs, "recoveries", and other issues with errors because of them. I have so many programs and data on my system that reinstalling Windows is really a last resort and would take an inordinate amount of time that I simply don't have. I have the latest Firmware for the SSDs and the latest BIOS update for my motherboard so it has nothing to do with those things.

Unfortunately, although I created some restore points, I turned System Restore off thinking I could still use the restore points once I turn it back on! It turns out that once you turn System Restore (Protection) "off", it automatically deletes all the restore points!

Can someone who is savvy with computers PLEASE HELP ME? I really need to reinstall Office 2010 and then everything will be okay. All other programs are working fine even though Windows has a "recovered" tag on it.

Try this and click Method 4

Even though you uninstalled it, Check if there are any remaining files left behind. Try to reinstall Office 2010.

If that failed
Download Windows Installer CleanUp utility and remove the Office 2010 entries, Then try and reinstall.
