Windows 7 64bit.  Excel 2010 32bit.  All of a sudden I get this error when starting Excel.  I have no VBA projects that I am aware of.  Any ideas how to narrow this error down, like what is calling it or what file it is referring to?  

Run-time error '-2147024894 (80070002)':

Automation error
The system cannot find the file specified.
