Problem opening Excel by double clicking on a file shortcut

When I double click on a an excel file (which is supposed to open Excel), it
starts to load Excel then I get an 'encountered an error' and has to close
window. I do not get this problem on my other office documents (Word,
PowerPoint). When I send the error report, Excel will then continue to load,
but will not load the file I clicked on (I've tried .xlsx and .xls file
types). If Excel is loaded without a file it loads as it should and then I
can go in and Open->File and it works. Also, if Excel is already open (in
the background) and I navigate via Windows Explorer to an excel file and then
double click on the file, it opens properly. Therefore the error is only
happening when Excel is being started by Windows by opening a file with the
associated file type.

The checkbox is already cleared. This is in Excel 2007 if this helps any.
Also, I didn't start having this problem until I used Office Update recently.
