Simple enough.
Change the shortcuts default. Starting an app is done by the user.

How to Add a Switch to the Microsoft Excel Shortcut
1.Right-click Start, click Open, and then double-click the Programs folder.
2.Right-click the shortcut for Microsoft Excel, click Properties, and then click the Shortcut tab.
3.In the Target box, type the switches that you want after the command that runs Excel.exe. For example, if you want Excel to start without creating a new workbook, and the Excel.exe file is installed in the default location, type the following in the Target box:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Excel.exe" /e

Right Click on your desktop and select " create a new shortcut.
[find Excel's path. In my case]
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\EXCEL.EXE" /safe
As you can see, you need to add the [/safe] switch after the quotes.
Name your shortcut.. "Excel Safe" or something descriptive like that.
This worked for me on Excel 2010
