I recently installed excel 03 on my pc , 2 gig memory 205 gig hdd.. the works everything is ok on that end
Ok so far so good , I created a dozen or so speadsheets with financial stuff with the excel.. I think I learned how to use it pretty well .
I do have a compulsion to backup and maintain my computer and I have every backup software and hardware you could think of .
I also have registry mechanic and I use the xp system tools disc clean also and have a the vcom system suite 5 also with cleanup tools and registry cleaners just like norton system works or what ever ..
well I put on the registry cleaner and saw eighty five green squares , orphant or links to nowhere it said and ok to delete them all , well I never had a problem before deleting those things and used it for a few years so I clicked apply
and it killed excel and all the spreadsheets , also registry mechanic and word too so I tried system restore and tried to go back one day and it said unsuccessfull , so I thried two days same thing three days same thing
so I went ahead and unistalled and reinstalled everything and vowed never to use that again , so now I have this more innoculous clean up tool in there called quick clean and it had everything checked off to clean my system so I clicked apply and guess what happened the same thing and I did the same remedy and all is well now , now I also did the xp disc clean ( tif and all that stuff but not temp folder ) so I don;t know for sure which killed my excel , but I think it was the vcom system suite 5 , so now I am afraid to use the registry mechanic to clean my system and afraid to use the xp disc clean , I don't know why this happened , it was about four or five days after I installed the excel that I tried to clean my PC , I wonder if you have to wait longer to use those things , should I uninstall and reinstall the vcom system suite , and maybe the green squares will not be there ?? and maybe I could use the quick clean again . What do the experts think I should do and why did this happen .
Oh by the way , the system suite people are offering no support for version 5 because they just put out version 6
