Found the problem with 2003, it is also relate to the Addins from bluetooth, but this si a com addin not a Excel.
I install office 2007, next to 2003.
The problem with Excel in 2003 was still there ,
then I went in ==> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins
And change the LoadBehavior key from 3 to 0
Then restart excel 2003...and IT WORKS !
 
I will n ow start check this on other PC without 2007 on it....
