I doubt it is anything to do with Acrobat but there is one way of finding out. Uninstall Acrobat from Control panel Add/Remove programs. If Office works after that then it is indeed something to do with Acrobat. If not then you have exonerated Acrobat and can reinstall it.

You can download the single image version of Microsoft Office 2010 from here and the Product Key that you already have will determine which version is installed. If you don't know your Product Key, download, install and run Belarc Advisor which will show the keys of all installed software.
