SharePoint Opening excel file opens to temp folder on local comp instead of web site

I have a user that opens an excel file (Has correct permissions) with Excel 2010 and SPS 3.0...(I know a little outdated) however, Other users can open the excel file and edit it and save it no problem, but when this user opens the same excel file, it opens in  temp folder on his computer and when he clicks save, it saves to his local computer.
When  going to file in excel, you see the path to his local computer for this file, when you go to file on others, you see the path to the sharepoint web server.
Its not the IE version, nor permissions as I log into sharepoint with the users credentials. It is pointing to excel options...I am not seeing it.

Can someone point me in the right direction, not finding much on this....thx

I've experienced an issue similar to this in the past, for us, the user's profile was corrupt.  We simply backed up his user profile to a fileshare, deleted it, and had him log back in to rebuild his profile.  As a test, you could have them log into another workstation and test whether it excel opens in the browser.  

You can also verify that in the document library, its set to open in the browser.  From library settings, it's under Advanced Options.
