Question Error: The file may be corrupted, located on a server that is not responding, or read

Hi there,
When I open an excel file the following error message is displayed:
“The file may be corrupted, located on a server that is not responding, or read only”


Since this happened whenever I open any excel file, the above error message is again displayed, I must also mention that I am sure my files are not read-only and the files are stored on my hard disk and I use VM ware and my OS is windows server!
How can I solve this problem?
I have also posted my qustion in the links bellow:

Regards

Have you tried repairing your file ?
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ex...001034656.aspx works for 2003 and 2007/2010

Alternatively use

  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Excel Options.
  2. Click Resources.
  3. Click Diagnose, click Continue, and then click Start Diagnostics.
and try opening a file
