Excel Won't Start

By karini4 ·
Win98 system with Excel 2002: Suddenly, I cannot start excel. It will hang my PC with error message that system is low on resources - there is no other recourse but a reboot. All other office programs start just fine. Virtual memory is fine, disk space is fine. 512 MB of ram. Note: I had just installed the latest patches to office xp from the microsoft website. Any ideas?

Probable toolbar corruption.
Locate and rename any files with an XLB extension.
Excel will re-create them.

A VERY BIG THANK YOU. Your suggestion worked like a charm. Now I can get back to work.
