It sounds like you have corruption in your Excel install, since it is occurring across all excel workbooks.
I'd recommend first trying a repair on Excel.  If that doesn't solve the issue, uninstall then reinstall.

Unfortunately, there's probably no way around it.  Hopefully you have the install disks??

The only other thing I can think of to try is to upgrade the SP for office 2007, if you are not on the latest one.  If you haven't already done the uninstall/reinstall, you could give this a try.
