Excel 2010 and Home Directory Download

every time i open excel 2010 it trys to open everything in the h: drive which is the network home directory. pst files, word docs, adobe acrobat executable. no matter what i do i can't stop it. if i disconnect the drive share it's fine but immediately starts again when i reconnect, i have run a repair of the installation, i have tried to clear out the autorecovery and turn that off. Any ideas? this is a bit bonkers and makes no sense?

@ zlamare - didn't work. i basically renamed files moved them around in the home directory and it works for now. the thing i can't figure out is why say a pst file is being seen from excel as an add-in and it try's to load it as such. I have checked every path, setting you can think of and nothing even points to the h: drive which is the home directory. very strange but i will keep at it. thank you.
