Hi,

since update from Office XP SP2 to SP3 we have many users that can not open a lot of

Excel documents anymore. It's on all PC's with SP3.

Excel starts with: Microsoft Excel encountered a problem and needs to close. We are

sorry for the inconvenience.

and does not open the worksheet.



With the same document there is no problem with Office XP SP2 and Office 2000.

The documents were created with Excel 2000.


I spend a lot of time on Microsoft articles to find a solution.
I found this already and requested, received and installed the following hot fixes:
Article: KB Article Number(s): 829348, 831824, 835718, 838895, 840640

and KB Article Number(s): 841366, 842305
but still the same problem.



Need help ..



Is there a possibility to contact Microsoft directly with this Problem?

If you had an older version of Symantec/Norton Antivirus installed on
the computer before you got Symantec Corporate Edition, then the Office
Plugin from the older version could still be registered in Windows even
if you have uninstalled the older version. Search for the OFFICEAV.DLL
file on the computer (include system and hidden files/folders). If you
find it, note the folder where it is located, and use the "regsvr32 /u"
method described in http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=329820 to
unregister the DLL.

Today I checked it on a fresh installes PC with Office XP SP3.
I did not found a OFFICEAV.DLL file.
I guess i'm going to open a case with Microsoft ....
