Excel is exhibiting very strange behavior. Whenever I double click on an Excel worksheet, an instance of the Excel program opens. However, the document, and no documents for that matter, are open. It is quite annoying, although worries me more from the standpoint of possibly indicating impending further instability.

Ideas?

Thanks much

***EDIT***
This is Excel XP with SP3 recently installed. This behavior began prior to installing SP3 and seems unrelated to any installs or computer changes.

Click TOOLS --> OPTIONS --> GENERAL and uncheck the box labeled "Ignore Other Applications" if it is checked.

If that doesn't work, you can try to re-register Excel by clicking START --> RUN and then typing Excel.Exe /regserver and then click OK.
