Some typical causes that may result in the crashing and freezing of the Microsoft Excel 2010 program or prevent it from working are as:
- Latest updates not yet installed
Microsoft releases updates from time to time. If the latest ones aren’t installed on your PC, it may reflect by starting up problems in the various applications including Microsoft Office 2010. To avoid this, immediately install the updates by visiting the official website of Microsoft.
- Conflict with the installed security software
If you have antivirus software installed in your PC and the same is outdated or a setting thereof is causing a conflict, it could trigger startup and performance issues in your Microsoft Office 2010. To handle this issue you will have to update your antivirus program and look for the particular settings that may be creating the conflict. Although modifying the settings in your security program isn’t a safe thing to do, you may temporarily do it to check if that was causing the Microsoft Excel 2010 error. If this is the case, contact your antivirus provider and look for resolutions that can help keep the two applications integrated and also prevent the startup of similar errors.
- Microsoft Excel 2010 has been set to automate
By setting the Microsoft Excel 2010 application to ‘Automate’ you can save a great deal of time and efforts as the tasks that you frequently do on your program will now be automatically done. You can set the automate feature ‘On’ to routinely use the commands and tools that you frequently use. Â However, this may create conflict in your application and thereby force it to stop responding. As a fix, stop the automation feature and check if the application is now running fine.
- Corrupted user profile
If there are multiple user profiles created on your PC and if one of them goes corrupt, the same can result in the Microsoft Excel 2010 crash or non-responsive issue. To resolve this, fix the corrupted user profile and restart your system before accessing the application to start work afresh. User profiles can be easily repaired by creating a new profile and copying or importing the files from the older user profile to the new one.
- Insufficient memory
Yes, this can also be one of the main reasons to have forced your Microsoft Excel 2010 application from functioning correctly. Using too many tools such as shapes, diagrams, and formatting features can cause your application to display performance issues and at times may even prevent it from working efficiently. Check your RAM capacity and if you require better storage facility, you could also opt to upgrade your PC from 32-bit to 64-bit and thereby enjoy enhanced features and tools.
