I have a Windows 7 laptop. I run microsoft office 2003 and have been since I got the machine, which is about 3 years. All of a sudden now, every time I try to launch Excel, Excel crashes. I've rebooted several times. I've run windows update. I ran repair on Excel, no luck. I uninstalled and ran a clean install on Excel alone, no dice. I uninstalled the entire Microsoft Office application and reinstalled the entire application, including updates from the microsoft site, and I STILL have the problem. The CD I'm installing from is brand new, I just unwrapped it from a retail package. Anybody have ideas or suggestions?

I have a copy of Office 2007 downstairs, but I really didn't want to switch and would rather not if I don't have to. My application use is modest, I don't do anything fancy.
