    I'm not entirely sure, but I think the normal.xls file may be corrupted.  I know it's happened to be before, but I don't entirely know how to remedy it.  I wouldn't post with such weak info, but I see nobody has offered any assistance.

    If that's not the case, then may just need to reinstall Excel.

    Are you running any add-ins, or do you have code running in a Personal Macro Workbook?

    If so, disable one of those at a time until you isolate the source of the error.
