    Using Excel from Office 2003 is now causing my Windows XP computer to freeze. It requires a hard boot. When I reboot, and open Excel, I get the message

    "Excel experienced a serious error the last time the add-in 'c:\program files\microsoft office\office 11\library\analysis\atpvbaen.xla' was opened. Would you like to disable this add-in?
    To reactive this add-in, click About Microsoft Office Excel on the Help menu, and then click Disabled Items"

    I clicked "Yes" to disable. Later, it froze again. I enabled the xla file, and again, it froze.

    The computer freezing only occurs when an Excel file has been opened, but after a few minutes. It may freeze when not working in Excel, but in another program. Absolutely nothing works when frozen.

    Pretty shure that version has a repair function try in control panel add remove programs click Microsoft Office 2003, and then click Change.
    You will be offered the chance to repair from there.. Also wnen you get it running or can open word or other office programs be sure to check for updates.
