Hi all,

I can not open any desktop shortcuts of valid Excel files with Excel 2003.  I also can't use the
Windows Explorer to open any files...however, these same files will open if I use the Excel Open
dialog or the MRU list.  Is there a fix for this...I've already run the Excel Detect and Repair
tool, but it was no help.

Any ideas out there?
