I suggest you uninstall Office completely, shut down, start up, install Office again, update (to right now) and see if that fixes the issue.

If you have the same issue, try:

1. Restoring to a prior point (Windows Restore) and
2. Making a new Windows Profile. Make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new account and test Excel in the new account. You may have a damaged profile.
