I am getting that "1004 Application-defined or object-defined error" when I open Excel 2010 running on Windows 7 64-bit OS.  I do not even have a spreadsheet open, much less any programming code running.  Any thoughts?

Reasons:
1) It could be because of an add-in that it is trying to open.
2) It could be becase of the personal.xls sheet which you might be having in your XLStart folder
3) It could be opening excel sheets from your startup folder and the error could be in any one of those.

try opening the excel in safe mode excel /s. OR keep the CTRL key pressed while opening excel and click Yes on the prompt.

hope this helps.

One other thing to consider, was this a clean install of Office 2010, or was this an upgrade?
