I have just installed Windows XP Pro on my system,
updated everything using Windows Update, then installed
Office 97 with SR1 and SR1. When I open Excel and click
TOOLS>OPTIONS, it crashes Excel (gives an error and shuts
down the program). Error dialog text is pretty useless..
just says "Microsoft Excel has encountered a problem and
needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Thoughts and suggestions appreciated!
