Excel runs, but files will not open

Hi all-
If I try to open an excel file from a folder or explorer, Excel will
run, but the file will not open. I do not get an error message.

But, if I open excel, and then go File-->Open--> Excel file, then the
file will open.

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Office(SBE 2003), but that did
not work. I did just try the 'excel.exe /regserver' solution, but that
did not work and I got an error:

"One of your object librarie (stdole32.tlb) is missing or damaged.
Please run setup to install it.

Though the command excel.exe /regserver did finish what ever it was
doing after the error.

Any ideas? Thanks!
