    Hi!
    I have a problem I hope someone can solve:
    When I open Excel I get a dialog box saying: “System Error &H800040005
    (-2147467259). Unspecified error”. This is immediately followed by an “Out of Memory” dialog box. As I open files and use the program there are no problems. But when I close the program, I get the same “System Error…” again, immediately followed by “Out of Memory”
    (Excel 2003 SP3 – WinXP Pro SP2)
    I still have the use of the program but the above is irritating!
    Thank you for any suggestions,
    Fred.

    I thought I never installed an add-in but when I looked under "Tools" -
    "Add-ins", I found one ("Crystal Wizard 10" ???), don't know where it came from... Disabled it and the problem was gone...
