Excel 2007 has startup error



One of the employees went in to the Excel Options - Advanced and added a
shared drive to the General - At Startup open all files in.
Unfortunately, there are many files in the drive that are not excel files so
the program will not open. I have tried various suggestions from other posts
but no success.
Even excel.exe /safe did not bypass that command.
I placed an excel file in the xlstart folder and it briefly opened that file
then went to the shared drive again.
How can I get to the options again if the program won't open?
Thank You

You can find this in the Registy and delete the path.

With Excel closed go to Start>Run regedit.exe

Drill down to...............


In right-side panel look for AltStartup.

Right-click>Modify...........delete the path.
