>If it is one or more Microsoft updates causing the problem, their not
affecting my computer. I'm using Windows XP Pro, SP2, fully updated, and
It's not affecting my laptop (XP Pro and Office Pro 2003) or my wife's
desktop (XP Home and Office Std 2003).
>Just to be on the safe side, disconnect from the Internet when you're doing
this: Shut down any antivirus software you might have. If you're using a
firewall above and beyond the one that's built into Windows (e.g., Zone
Alarm), turn it off too. Once you've done those two tasks, try
double-clicking on your Excel file again.<
Tried all that...still had the same problem.
