go to some excel file and then right click on the file and then
select the properties, then hit "CHANGE" button on the opens
with block and select the excel program.

Then try to open it from any location if it works well and good.
If it does not then we can think about further trouble shooting

So when do you get the error? When you double-click to open the file?

You may also want to reconsider where the data is stored. If your OS partition croaks, you could lose all those files.
