Excel and Word running in the background opening all my files...

Recommended Posts

Hi, if anyone recognizes what's going on here, I'd like your advice/help!

Soon after startup, Excel starts running in the background on my laptop and opens every spreadsheet it can find, one by one, in the background. I only know this because some of the files are passworded and the password entry dialog pops up. If I end the Excel process in Task Manager it just starts again. After Excel has been through every spreadsheet, Word starts up and does the same with all my Documents. Malware bytes does find any problem, so I'm wondering if it could possibly be a configuration issue?!

I am running: Windows XP 5.1 SP 3, Excel 2000 SR-1, Word 2000 SR-1

Thanks for any suggestions
