comment Classic Windows oddities… (NTFS.SYS error that fixes itself?!)
Have you tried restoring one of the recovery backups usually made before you install windows patches? Have you tried using windows recovery mode? Otherwise, your final step would be to start from stratch.

so why the downvote here? I think my answer is in keeping in line with what you are going to have to do.

comment How to decrypt hdd on Windows Vista?
Oh not true....disk encryption methods vary in scope and ability to decrypt by OS or application for a variety of reasons. I'm afraid you'd be hard pressed to decrypt a BitLocker disk on Linux....also try to decrypt a Linux based encrypted filesystem system on a Windows box. Also encryption/decryption using an application is NOT OS general and again restricted to the specific application.

I'm not sure that this is the appropriate venue for this type of question. Also, any response would be opinion.

comment Virtualbox very unstable
You might wish to purchase VMware Workstation and try that. I think that it is more stable than Virtualbox anyway. Of course, you get what you pay for.

Insert Windows 8 DVD disk, have key information handy, reboot to the DVD drive and reinstall it. I don't understand what the problem is here.

Why did not you use the standard Office deinstallation process? instead of using an unknown 3rd party installation process?
