How can I stop "Undo" across multiple spreadsheets?

When I am working between multiple separate workbooks in Excel 2010, Undo will work backwards across all of the workbooks that I have open.  How do I get the Undo function to work only on the workbooks that I am currently in?  Noticed this is not a problem in Word 2010 only Excel 2010 nor does it happen in Office 2003 (I don't know about 2007).

I don't think that happens to me, and I don't see an option to set or unset. Try running Excel in Safe Mode (no addins) to see if an add-in is causing the issue. ... Thinkpads_User
I looked again through all the options. Try doing an Office Repair. From Control Panel -> Add/Remove | Programs/Features -> Select Office -> Change and then repair.  ... Thinkpads_User

Good tip...

Or you can just run Excel from the start menu as many times as you want instances.  At least that's how my setup works

Thanks Michael,  I'll look into those.  They mostly seem to be for older versions of Office not 2010 so some modifications will have to be made unless we find a 2010 solution.

For some reason it's not working for me.  The download for the msi just opens a text file and the one with the zip is not installing a program on my PC to select for step 2 in his directions.  I'm using winXP.
The file has been posted as "Install_runExcel.msi.txt" and so you need to remove the .txt
