  • 1. Help Definitions not Displaying
    Microsoft Help, regardless of the program, is not displaying definition pop up windows. These are the windows with the definition for highlighted text (this does not include linked terms and phrases - these work fine). When I click on the term/phrase, it changes color from blue to purple as if it has been visited, but nothing was displayed. We have tried the Detect and Repair feature. OS: Windows 2000, SP3 Suite: Office 2000 Any ideas?

2.EXCEL.EXE is not a valid win32 application

Sometimes when I try to open excel directly, or by double-clicking an excel 
file, I get the error message "EXCEL.EXE is not a valid win32 application". 
The first time it happened, I tried repairing office - and that seemed to 
work - but the last time, I shut down and restarted the comp and excel 
started to work again. Excel seems to be the only app that does this. I use 
it quite a bit, and it's giving me flashbacks to windows 95's multiple

4.Excel.exe is not a valid Win32 Application.

My system:  Vista Business 32bit with SP1, Office 2007 Professional with SP1.

For a while I was running Vista (without SP1) and using Office 2007 with 
SP1.  Rarely any issues.

Sometime after installing Vista SP1, I've been having odd issues with my 
Office installation, Excel especially.  I don't know if it's its SP1 related, 
or if it's just something went wrong with the Office install.

Here's the issue.  I leave my PC on 24/7 and simply lock it when I leave the 
office.  After several days, Excel will just stop working, completely.  When 
I try to launch excel I get the error "Excel.exe is not a valid Win32 

I have tried reapplying SP1.  After reapplying the SP1 and rebooting, 
everything returned to normal.  So I thought.  A week or so later, same 
issue.  It turns out simply rebooting resolves the issue temporarily.

I thought my Excel exe was corrupted (i.e. some file wrote/deleted 
information from the binary file).  I verified modified dates with other 
excel exe's and everything is the same.  Nothing seems out of the ordinary.

I can't find any relevant errors in my event log.  I can't see anything out 
of the ordinary when using SysInternal's process monitor either.  It's like 
something in Vista thinks this EXE is a bad EXE and it won't let it launch 
until I reboot.

I have even noticed after several times of launching the exe, if I browsed 
to the installation directory, the actual icon for Excel was dimmed, as if it 
was like a hidden file or something.  WTH?  When I rebooted, it returned to 
the normal icon.  I have yet to see the icon dim again, even during times of 

I disabled my antivirus thinking it was the culprit to no avail.

What in the world could be happening?  When I use the process monitor, the 
exe never even gets executed (i.e. no events for excel.exe).

Please help!!!
