In last week, when opening Excel, as soon as I click on any cell, the program locks itself into drag and highlight mode. Hitting escape or anything else doesn't help. I need to Ctl-Alt-Del twice to get out of it. I tried re-installing Microsoft Office, but problem remains. (Didn't uninstall first.)

Any ideas?
