    Error 1606.Could not access network location
    %appdata%(foward slash).

    Did you try the solution in first link google gives you?

    "Use the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility (MSI CleanUp Utility) to uninstall the old Java release.

    Error 1606. is a very common error and almost always can be solved by using the Utility to uninstall the previous Java installation.
    This type of error occurs in a lot of software that use the Microsoft installer. "

    EDIT: If that does not work you may try this:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/reprofiler/

    OR

    "Run -> regedit
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\
    There I modified the ProfilesDirectory from %SystemDrive% to c:
    Saved the change
    Ran the off-line Java installer and no more error message.
    I hope this works for you, it did for me :) "

    I did the 2nd part of your fixing thing and when I change %SystemDrive% to c: I get another error this is what it says.

    As it is nearly impossible for me from this distance to tell you which path is incorrect I would advise you to change it back to the original value %SystemDrive% and then read here and use the automatic fix that is offered here:

    You receive an "Error 1606" error message when you try to install or remove a Microsoft program

    EDIT: Under the manual section there you find how to check your folder structure manually

    Well the problem is probably related to your folder structure... I think you have to go over it again and look for the error in the manual section of the link I posted above. I know no other way, sorry.
    If you deleted your office file it could be in the trash and you may recover it. If not you need to reinstall it. ;)
