It should not act that way. You should install it once, then when you use it for the first time it should go through another process but that should be it. Then from then on all you have to do is start it up after you boot your computer. These type of problems look like a complete uninstall and reinstall.

Access: http://OfficeUpdate.Microsoft.com and look for Microsoft's _FREE_ "Excel Viewer" software. Download it & install it. This software can be used to view & print, but not to change, Excel spreadsheets.
you should buy the moe 2003 cd and install to your pc,try it and you'll see the result its hard to download it thru internet the best thing was to buy the microsoft office 2003 cd,,2nd choice was go to your pc repair shop and ask them to install all the software you need coz they had their own installer hope you like my answer
There is something not installed that it needs. If you have the Excel CD, try putting it in then running excel. If this is a corporate laptop/desktop try to connect to your company's network and running "advertised programs" in the control panel. If there was something related to Excel that hasn't been pushed to your computer, it would be pushed then.

Where were you saving the old Excel files to: c:\my documents for example. Is your new Excel saving or retrieving documents from the same location? If not, it will look like the old files are gone, when Excel is simply looking in the wrong place.
An installation won't wipe out data files--they're in two different locations. If you do a global wildcard search (*.xls) you will probably find them.
