    I just cleaned off and reloaded a friend's computer, and put the backed up user files back into my docs. And now his huge macro-ladened excel spreadsheets won't run their macros. Tried setting the macro security to low and they still won't run the macros. What gives?

    .. not just the workbook, but the entire application.

    Doh! Neglected that last step of closing and reopening the file. That worked. Thanks!
