I am using MS Excel 2010 on XP_SP3. When I open an excel file the program "crashes" and makes me restart. (Please see the attached screenshot). This is quite frustrating.  Thank you in advance for your help.

This can be caused by a hardware issue such as faulty RAM or not enough system resources. Was it working and then stopped? Is it a particular file that is giving you problems? Have you made any changes recently? You may be able to resolve it by using the Repair feature found under control panel, Programs and Features - you will need to have your installation disc handy.

I have two printers setup on for this system. I changed the default to my secondary printer and it works fine now.  Thanks for the help.
