  1. Can ayone tell me how to fix Excel:
    "Microsoft Excel cannot save AutoRecover info to C:\AFILES\A NEW DOCUMENTS.
    Please check the network connection or change the location on the Save tab of
    the Tools, Options dialog."

    When I open the Options tab to change the Save setting, it will not allow
    any changes and retunrs "Cannot access directory 'C:\AFILES\A NEW DOCUMENTS'."

    I have same problem - Excel 2003 with Windows XP home.
    The error message appears whene I try any tab on the Tools-Options dialogue
    The problem also seems to cause autoarchiving to fail and produce an error
    Another post suggests to open Excel from Start-Run using excel.exe/safe.
    I have tried this and Still get the error and the resultant inability to
    change any option in Excel.
