I can no longer click on an excel form and have it fire up excel and open the workbook. when I do so, it just starts excel, but brings me to a "gray" screen, without any workbook or the file displayed. If I drag a file onto either the Excel icon, or open Excel and drag the file in, it will open just fine.

I have repaired, uninstalled, wiped all directories, used Regclean, reinstalled and it behaves just the same. I can't find the file Personal.xls on my hard drive, this may be related.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
