    "Not enough memory to run microsoft excel. Please close other programs and try again"
    So this morning I tried to open up excel, and this message comes up. Same happens for word.
    Then I try and open it again and it wants to run in safe mode, and then the same problem happens.
    Then I open it again and it says "Excel failed to launch in safe mode. Do you want to start Detect and Repair?"
    So I run that and it says setup completed successfully. But I try and open it and I get the original "not enough memory" message, and it's just a big loop.

    I have enough memory, 3GB and I'm using office 2007 on windows 7.
    It's been running fine since this morning.

    How about diskspace that's ' memory' too.
    The environment settings voor %TEMP% could be invalid?

    I've got 80GB free on my harddisk.
    How do I change the settings for the %TEMP% thing?
