This is an issue with Word also but for Word, it would show that it was having a problem with an add-in but it is doing that for ALL addins. I finally got Word working by unchecking Acrobat and then it would load and I created a few documents. An hour later, started having the problem.
Excel and Powerpoint will not even launch in safe mode. I have tried even holding down the ctrl key when selecting Excel and Powerpoint and select yes to launch in safe mode but when it tries, it immediately closes. I have set the addins in registry to "0" but still will not open.
Help please!!! Also this happens for this user on different machines but not another user on that same machine. It has to be something in the registry but I am not having any luck with resolving this.
