Excel generates errors to specific users

By netsecret ·
Excel.exe generates errors under Windows 2000 when it is opened only under the administrator login...not under other users on the same PC. Excel closes up immediately. Have uninstalled and reinstalled Windows 2000 and Office 2000 under the admin login to no avail. Ran anit-virus. Other users on the pc have no problems using Excel.

I'm not sure if this will help but... I had a similar problem with NT4.0 and 2K but with a normal user profile not the Administrator account. I tried the same reinstall Office, etc. I finally tried deleting the users profile and registry SID. When the user logged onto the computer a new profile was created and everything worked fine there after. Not sure exactly what the problem was but it was definitely a profile issue. Of course as I said that wasn?t the Admin profile and I was not using roaming profiles due to limited server space.

Hope this helps. As always, don?t forget to save user specific data like Favorites folder, My Documents folder and any other information that isn't backed up elsewhere.
