This is a common error and probably has far more to do with the workbook your user is using than with their operating system.

It's the same way firefox will crash if a bad javascript goes rogue. You should get the user to send you any documents causing crashes so you can investigate if there's anything wrong with their size, external links, or macros running within them.  If the user is unwilling to improve the workbooks then let then short of a shot in the dark attempt at reinstalling Microsoft Office 2003, their only option would be to upgrade to a later version of Office (2007 or 2010) and simply hope that the same problem doesn't occur.

It can happen at any time, for example, if he has a new workbook he has been working on for say half an hour, if he tries to copy or cut cells, that is when the error appears.
I have also disabled the send to bluetooth option from Excel and in the registry at HKEY, LOCALMACHINE, SOFTWARE, MICROSOFT, OFFICE, EXCEL, ADDINS, BtOFFICEAddin.BtOFFICEIntegration.1 and set the setting to 0. This has not made any difference unfortunately.
Don't really want to make the move to 2007 or 2010 as it would be a steep learning curve as the gui is quite different to 2003's.

Then I guess all you have left is a shot in the dark re-installation of office 2003.

Does the error happen for all users who  log into the machine?

marmaduke0Author Commented:
There is only one user profile set up on the machine. I'm pretty much stuck as far as access goes as the user travals with the laptop and is not on site very often.

This happens for all users.

I disabled all Send to Bluetooth addin for all Office suite programs. That fixed it.
Thanks for the help
