I have a user that uses Excel 2010 and whenever she double clicks an exisiting file Excel opens the file along with Book1.  How can I stop this book1 from appearing?

I have searched for Book1 on the computer and nothing, even after showing all hidden file, etc.  There is nothing in the XLSTART folder in the program files directory and also in the docs & settings folder, but this keeps happening.

I logged in as an admin account and when opening the same file it does not open a book1, then logging in as another standard user account it does open a book1, so maybe a permission issue.

But where would the permission issue be?

Anyone else have the same problem.

Thanks if anyone can help.
