Default Can't make Excel default program, not on list.

Excel is listed in Start/All Programs, but when if I click on a file and
choose "open with", Excel is not on the list for .xls.

If I download the file and save it, then open Excel and open the file, no
problem.

If I "browse" for programs to open that file type, Excel is not listed.

Under Tools, Options, General, is "Ignore other applications" ticked? If so,
untick.

I am not able to find the tools,options, general tabs in vista. Where
do I look for this?


In Excel, Options Advanced General (For Excel 2013, likely similar or the same for 2007)

"Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange" I believe this is what she is referring to.
