First, don't post in giant letters. It will not make people more inclined to help you; if anything, it will do the opposite.

Second, the link to your screenshot gets me to a page with the message

> Oops... there's nothing to see here. Either you do not have access to these photos, or they don't exist at this web address. Please contact the owner directly to gain access.

so I have no idea what your problem is.

Third, outside howtos are not supported here.  The only howtos supported here are the ones in the AppDB. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=17336

Fourth, while Office 2010 will install, it is not very usable. The AppDB lists all the known issues. It also states clearly that installing Office 2010 should be done for testing only. 
If you actually need to use Office, install Office 2007, which generally works well.
