Excel 2010 trouble opening files

Hello,

I'm having this weird problem with MS Office 2010. When I'm working on excel files tend to crash for no reason and too frequently when I try to open them.

I have gotten these two messages:

1) Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications.

2) Excel found unreachable content in "XYZ.xlsx". Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes.

3) Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications.

This is what I did until now trying to fix the issue.

Fully updated the system
Upgrade RAM from 4GB to 8GB
Upgrade from MS Office 2007 to MS Office 2010
Re-image the machine and re-install MS Office 2010

Any ideas what else could be causing errors when opening excel? I'm using a Dell machine, Windows 7 professional 64 bit, 8GB RAM.

What happens if you start with a fresh XLSX file and fill it with similar data?

Do you have an XLSX file that is causing this problem that you can attach to a post?

I can't post the file because it has some sensitive data . Friends that access the same file don't have the problem I am having, this is why makes me feel is not the data in the spreadsheet.

2) Excel found unreachable content in "XYZ.xlsx". Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes.

In regards to the above error, See the link below:

Error message when you try to open a workbook in Excel 2007: "Excel found unreadable content in Book_Name"


I would advise checking your "Installed Updates" in add-remove programs, If you have
"Microsoft Office File Validation Add-in" I would recommend uninstalling, Then reboot your pc.


Then, Make sure your running the latest Office Service Pack,
Service pack 1 can be found here:

I believe the clean boot has resolved the problem. I'm still testing it for a little while until it feels resolved.
Thank you all, and especially Usernameissues for the information that better fit this problem.
