    Default Serious problems with ActiveX

    Hello everyone
    For two days I excel is acting strange and unpleasant .
    Every time I open any file with macro , made ​​by me ' or other , does not allow me to use activeX controls .
    For example , if a sheet is a button created as a control module that works .
    If the button is created with an ActiveX control does not see it right , if in the " Development " and " Mode ' design " , right click and I highlight the button to see its properties goes out the window with the properties of the sheet .
    If I try to insert an ActiveX object in the sheet out a message that says :
    Can not insert object
    Do you have any advice or do I reinstall ?

    Caused by Windows update, use a disk cleaning program (e.g. CCleaner) to delete all temp files, or manually search for *.exd files and delete them.

    Hello Rick , thanks for the answer
    I use win7 on desktop and WinVista on the laptop
    with laptop no problem, System Restore and everything went fine.
    with win7 a disaster
    . additional components does not take them , even after cccleaner all update files have mysteriously disappeared from the list office updates
    . System Restore , after the restart , by mistake and not restoring to an earlier date
    . I used cccleaner to clear any temporary files
    . I uninstalled office and then I reinstalled
    . Result does not change


    probably wait for a new update that all systems , at least on win7
    Patience use modules control
    thanks

    Waiting for the release of a patch , I solved the problem this way:
    I uninstalled these updates KB 2920734 and KB 2726958 .
    Deleted files .exd
    Now excel works well
    Attention this is valid for Windows7 and Excel2013 for other versions of excel you have to look for other updates
    Excel2007-2010 : KB2553154
    Excel2003 : KB2984942
