When try to open excel doc I'm getting error
"the source was not found but some or all event logs could be searched
Inaccessible logs:security."

I've make sure i have rights to all of my profile and make my self admin

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog
•      Right-click Eventlog, and then click Permissions. The Permissions for Eventlog dialog box appears

but this is not working

Try a couple of different things:

1. Make a new Windows 7 userid and make the userid a member of the adminstrator's group. Log in on that new userid and try Excel. Does it work?  You may have a profile error in Windows.

2. Go to Programs and Features, click on Office, then Change and do an Office Repair. Once the Repair is complete, make sure Service Pack 1 for Office is installed and Office is fully patched.

3. Still no luck:  Then uninstall Office completely, restart and install Office again (Full, not Typical, except for languages foreign to you).  Add SP1 and patch fully.

Any luck at this point?   .... Thinkpads_User

Thinkpads, just to double-check on your typically good advice, isn't Office 2007 actually on Service Pack 3 now?

Bah humbug!   Yes of course, Office 2007 is on SP3. I was thinking of Office 2010 which is still SP1.  Thank you!  .... Thinkpads_User

If the same error occurs in a different user profile (Windows) and if you have repaired/reinstalled Office, then:  The next most likely candidate is malware. Use Malwarebytes to scan and then get a good antivirus tool for yourself.

I use Office 2010 now but had Office 2007 on Windows 7 and it worked perfectly well.

In most cases, it is as much work (nearly as much work) to replace the profile as to reinstall Windows. Perhaps to reimage the PC would be the most reliable course of action.
