I've Sony Vaio laptop with windows vita home premium + MS office 2007 installed on it.

Whenever I open/close an excel sheet file the system get freeze & this error message comes (Microsoft office excel has stopped working) . . . I've uninstalled & reinstalled MS Office again thinking that would help but still i'm having this issue.

P.s: the only way to avoid this is opening the Excel Application first then ( File > Open > selct the file you want to work on ).

Please Advice ?

    I have found a forum where users described the same issue you are describing.  The resolution for most users was to do the following:

    1. Open Excel from start menu.
    2. Click the Office symbol in top left corner, hit Excel options.
    3. Click "Add-Ins", then choose COM Add-Ins from dropdown menu in bottom of
    your window and click Go.
    4. Mark the line with Bluetooth in it, and click remove.

    After completing this restart your system.
