Make sure you have a document open (otherwise you wont be able to access these options)
Go to Tools>Options>General then uncheck Ignore other applications
Click the Windows Start Button>Run and type excel /unregserver
then Click the Windows Start Button>Run and type excel /regserver
The /unregserver & /regserver stuff resets the windows registry to excel's factory defaults.

Just started happening with Excel 2003. A desktop shortcut to my frequently-used spreadsheet would launch Excel, but the spreadsheet would not be opened. I'd have to File>Open>and navigate to the files location (which defeats the purpose of a shortcut).
I had created a keyboard shortcut to the same file on my Logitech Wave keyboard so I wonder if there is some conflict. The file would not open with my Logitech hot key combination nor my WIN XP desktop shortcut. Previously either worked fine. Might be related to a recent upgrade to Logitechs Setpoint 4.82.11. Don't have time or desire to go back to a previous restore point. Especially since last suggestion worked. Namely:
With Excel spreadsheet open, click Tools > Options and on General tab, uncheck "Ignore other applications".
Thanks to all who took the time to post!
