Excel works only if opened first

Excel Problem. Since reformatting my C: drive and reinstalling Win XP together with Microsoft office I am experiencing a problem with Excel. Attempts to open any of the excel files [New ones and those I have accumulated over the years produces the following error message]. “ Microsoft excel has encountered a problem and needs to close”.

If however I open excel first then open any excel file everything works as normal.
Any suggestions would be appreciated,

Pop the office CD back in and choose the repair option. Sounds like you have a faulty install.
