Can you see if removing the temporary file cache will resolve this.

With all programs closed, go Start - type %temp% and press enter.

Press CTRL+a to highlight then CTRL+d to delete.

Confirm and check the box to Skip for the remaining items and then see if you still get the same error.

If so, go Start - type appwiz.cpl and press enter then right click on the package that has Excel and select Repair.

You may need to select Change first if there isn't a direct option for Repair.
