It clearly sounds like an installation problem. I recall reading a number of other complaints about installation issues (usuaally licensing-related) with TCS2, and maybe this is just another one. You should probably check out the Adobe forums for TCS2, but I suspect that it's probably time to check out what's currently playing on the music-on-hold system at Adobe Tech Support...

And you needn't worry about losing the Acrobat ribbon. Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Presenter are completely separate applications even if they are bundled together in the TCS2 suite. And even if you *did* for some inexplicable reason lose the Acrobat ribbon in PowerPoint, that would have no effect on whether the Acrobat ribbon is available in Word. A separate chunk of plug-in code that provides the Acrobat ribbon is installed into each of the different applications in the Office 2007 suite so they are completely independent.
