    excel 2010 wants to install another program when opening

    for some reason excel 2010 wants to start the installation of a program already installed.
    i can cancel the installation without any problems, kind of annoying.

    Blackbeard007,

    Welcome to the lounge as a new poster.

    What program is attempting to install? Have you checked to see what items are in your XLStart folder located here C:\Users\[Your UserId]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART?

    B.B.

    You should have an XLStart folder in the location indicated. If you don't I'd suggest reinstalling Excel.
