Excel crashing often

One of our users is having an issue where Excel will crash and reload it self without warning forcing her to go into the recovered files and try to see how much she can save, but in the process is still losing a lot of time and information as she has to go through and rebuild all the files and delete the now conflicting versions.

I have attached the Event log where Excel is crashing and am hoping that you all will be able to guide me in the direction of success.

I have already tried running the Online/Quick Repair and it fails shortly after starting saying the Click-to-Run process failed.  We cannot do the full repair because the card with the Product Key on it was lost.

The only Add-in running in Excel is the Adobe Add-in, and all of the files being accessed are on the server, not locally stored.  She does not have the ABBYY application installed on her computer as I saw that was a common cause, and I have already disabled hardware acceleration using the registry key fix..

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Ok I have a question before we start. Will Excel crash in the safe mode?

Also it is one user, so:

1. Check for viruses - very common.
2. Uninstall Office, restart and reinstall Office.

Does this fix Excel?

3. If not, set up a new, test, Windows User Account (Profile) and try in the new user account. The existing user profile could be damaged.

We ended up finding the Key for her and just did a full online repair of the Office Suite.  This appears to have resolved the issue.
