    Strange Excel problem when opening an Excelbook

    When I open an Excelworkbook I get the following message from Excel (see attached picture)


    First I get a security warning that the Excelbook contains macros which is OK.

    I press Enable macros (totaly normal)

    Then the strange message appears when excel looks for MIM.EXE???. If I press OK

    I get following message from Excel:

    "Cannot run MIM.EXE. The program or one of its components is damaged or missing"

    I press OK and I get back to the strange message.
    But if I press Ok again I get the Cannot MIM.EXE message, but then after pressing OK I can can continue work with the Excelworkbook. Or If I press No in the very begining when I get the strange message I can also continue.

    Anyone know why this message and the problem come from?

    A Google search indicated MIM.EXE might be part of MusicMatch Jukebox.
    Perhaps a macro is trying to generate some music? If you disable macros and
    the error does not occur that might be it.
