Our computer no longer will open a file (only for Excel - all other programs work ok) from desktop shortcut or start-new office document.
If I hold down the shift key and right-click the shortcut and use 'open with' excel it works the first time - but then opens the same file even for the other desktop shortcuts. We are using MS Office 2000. I can't seem to uninstal just Excel - I have tried uninstalling the whole Office and reinstalling it but this hasn't fixed it. At the time we were trying to open a works file - also the computer on startup crashed as there was a disk left in it. thanks.
