When trying to open Excel 2000 on a XP SP 2 machine I get an error asking if I want to send to Microsoft. I can use Word and other Office products but Excel does not open. I cannot open it from the main icon or a saved spreadsheet. The saved spreadsheets are still associated with the program. I uninstalled and reinstalled Office as well to no avail.

I saved a screenshot of the first section of the "do you want to send to Microsoft" error data and it can be seen in the url below. If you need to see more please let me know. Seems to be a problem with Windows, perhaps.

Thanks in advance.

This can be caused by a corrupted Com Add-In in Excel.

Have a look here and slide down to Delete the registry keys for the COM add-ins

Remember to follow the instructions about backing up your registry as noted in the directions.

Hope this helps,

It worked. It was a toolbar file that was corrupt. I renamed the old one and let Excel create the new one. All is good for today.

Thanks for the link!
