opening excel in owa opens up media centre in VISTA

Hello,
We have a single laptop which runs on Vista Home Premium, and we access our exchange server using OWA.
When we receive an e-mail that has an excel attachment, it actually invokes the media centre.
When we click on the attachment, I notice that the graphic icon shown with the attachment is just palin white, ie not an excel logo.
We are then asked if we want to open or save the file. We then click on open, and we then get asked if we would like to save or exit.
We then get told that "a website wants to open web content using this program on this computer". The program detailed is Media Centre. When we click on "allow", the media centre fires up, and just sits there.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what we need to do to resolve this issue?

I should also add that other attachments open just fine, and when we log in from a different computer, the document is displayed in a web browser, in an excel format, not in excel. I should mention that the other workstation is running XP not Vista.
