Please don't pummel this non programmer if this is a stupid suggestion, but have you tried to reassociate the .xls extension with Excel 8.0 in My Computer? Just pull up My computer, go to View>options, and then the file type tab, then find the .xls extension and repoint it to your excel 8.0 installation.

I would tackle your problem in the following order:.

1) Since it seems that Excel 8.0 is what you need, I would first de-install Excel 5.0, and see if that solves your problem.
2) If that leaves your system confused, I would de-install 8.0 as well. It sounds like you are familiar with using the registry, so then I would save the registry first (there are a lot of shareware utilitys that will help you do this), and then using the find feature of the registry editor, I would delete all references to "EXCEL", "XL5", and "XLS" that remain after the de-install.
3) Then I would run sysedit and clean up SYSTEM.INI and WIN.INI for all references to Excel, specifically the associations. In Win95 and 98, these are re-loaded into the registry on every startup, so you don't want your system registry "polluted" again after all the work you did in this step.
4) Then with a TOTALLY clean system, as if you had just installed windows, I would install Excel 8.0 only, and this should create the correct associati
