I have a problem when using Excel 2010 in that when I 'Right Click' a cell to change something like Fill or Border etc, the Format box is hidden behind the work book? I have found that by switching to Outlook and then Minimizing it, the Format box is shown. However, when I click anything to try and change, the box disappears again behind the work book? The same thing happens if I try 'Save As'?

Still looking for a definitive answer, what I have found so far is to look at any add-ons in Excel and in Outlook and disable, starting with any 3rd party add-ons. I have seen some very strange issues when a new PC comes with a Trial version of MS Office, which is not used, and a full version is installed without removing that trial version. If you have this condition, be certain you create any Restore media you may need before removing the Trial. (Both should be removed, PC Restarted, then your selected version re-installed) It is not always the case that the existence of a Trial version prevents the installation of another, as it should.
