When you say that you updated the software, did you update the software itself or just the virus signatures? Either way, I would temporarily remove Norton Anti-virus and then try to run Excel. Assuming that is successful, I would then reinstall Norton and see if that fixes your issue.

You could also REMOVE Excel and then reistall it. That may fix it as well.

Hope this helps!
