The problem- I cant seem to open Excel documents when I go through the excel program (File -> Open), It continuously says that there is a corruption in the file or something wrong with the file, But I can open them when I browse to the folder and double click the file.
What I tried- uninstalling and reinstalling office (tried twice, once through add/remove programs and once from Microsoft fixit) adding the network drive to the trusted locations removing the preview pane and several other small things, cant think of them right now.
If anyone knows anything about what is going on here, I would really appreciate it if you could throw some possible solutions my way. Thanks in advance!

Have you tried check/unchecking the 'Ignore Other Applications' option in Excel?
it's under 'Excel Options > Advanced' in the 2007 version
