Excel Crash

Hi Guys,

I know Excel crashing is tricky to fully understand, however, I was wondering if anyone can interpret the following error details as obtained by the event viewer of the machine the crash happened on:

Any suggestions? I originally put it down to a memory fault but I have no grounds to base this on.

How do I do that?
Look in Add/Remove programs (for XP) or Programs and Features (for Vista/7).

If the latest version of Microsoft .Net Framework installed is lower than 4, then go to this website to download the latest version.

If it is 4, then select it and click "Repair".

I upgraded the .net version from 3.5 to 4, however I will not know if this immediately solves the problem as the error is intermittent.

Also not sure what actually changed on the computer after the installation, as I still saw .net framework 3.5 as a windows feature (screen shot 1), but also saw .net framework 4 as an installed program (screen shot 2). Before I installed .net 4, it was not entirely clear how to uninstall .net 3.5 so I just left it and installed .net 4 on top of it.
