Running Windows XP fully patched.

So why did you install net framework 1.1? Perhaps leave things as they are after the System Restore.

markkindred--I have Excel 2010 and .NET Framework 4, but not .NET Framework 1.1.
Maybe you should try version 3.5

I have just found that removing office file validation on two other affected PC's the problem seems to have been resolved.

i will test this on the remaining pc this post refers to and see if it resolves my issue
