|Subject:||Trouble With Default File Location|

Excel 2K3 sp2, WinXP Pro sp2.
Tools | Options | General | Default File Location
Tools | Options | Save | AutoRecover Save Location
It seems I made a typing error when I entered the path in one (or both)
of these text boxes (why haven't they ever added a Browse dialog to these?)
The resulting behavior is that when I navigate to Tools | Options and
try to select the Save or General tab to fix it, I get an error message:
"Unable to locate directory". The error message only has an OK button,
and the General (or Save) tab never displays, which effectively locks me
out of fixing the error manually.
/unregserver and /regserver didn't fix the problem, BTW. I presumed that
this would restore these settings to the factory defaults, but no luck.
