I recently installed Office 97 on my new computer with
WindowsXP.  Everything works ok except that when I try to
get access to the "Tools, Options" item on the Excel menu,
I get an error message that says "Microsoft Excel has
encountered a problem and needs to close."  I am able to
get access to that same menu item in other Office modules
(like Word and Outlook), but it does not work in Excel.
Has anyone encountered this or a similar problem and do
you know how to fix it?  I have tried reinstalling the
program, but nothing helps it so far.
