Whenever I open any Excel file, Excel opens every file on my desktop as well (excel or not). I have to wait until the whole bunch load up, then close them all. Any idea?
This fix is probably too late for you guys, but may be useful for the next person. Same thing happened to me; excel was trying to open a few Gb of zip files!
If excel never manages to startup properly:
I'm guessing this happened after I changed the 'preferred file location', but I can not remember whether the change in '...open all files in:' was an error on my part (very stupid one).
Hope that's useful
