Excel Macro workbook_open() BUG with addins?

Hello guys, I really need your assistance ;)
I wrote a VBA macro do some calculations and I added a splash screen with:

Private Sub workbook_open()
End Sub

now here is the problem, I save my macro as an addin, and enable this add-ins in excel "tool". now if I open an empty(new) excel workbook, everything includes my addin work just fine, my userform2 displays at the begining.
but if I open any existing(saved) workbook that contains data, it will behave like this:
userform2 displays as before, then it disappear as expected(After few second), but there isnt any workbook got opened, the excel window is here and it is gray, i can mannually create a new workbook or click open file button to open other workbook, but it doesnot open the workbook I chose automaticlly after i double click on the workbook icon.

I am pretty sure the problem has something to do with workbook_open sub,
if only I erase this sub, everything will be just fine.

I have searched so many online tutorials but none of them addressed the problem,
anyone knows what might be the reason?
thanks a lot :tazz:
