When I try to open a xls file, or click directly on the Execl.exe file, I get Excel's splash screen and then the computer goes out of memory or freezes.

I tried to disinstal and reinstall Excel, and I tried to start Excel directly from the CD: the result did not change.

I have Win ME + MS Office 2000 Pro on a Pentium III with 128Mb RAM (it isn't much, I know it).

I have finally found a soution: after appending a .txt extension to the file C:WINDOWSApplication DataMicrosoftExcelExcel.xlb, Excel could start regularly (Excel.xlb was automatically recreated. Good night!
