    wrong, office XP was running fine until I got the upgrade to 1805.


    To all, thanks for the input, I will try to install the 32 bit version and see what happens.

    Thanks again

    Sorry but 64 bit OS's are leading, when they are not Windows. Apple and Linux have done away with 32bit applications. You find that 64bit applications perform a whole lot better.

    Have to disagree, since it has been known for a long time that older software like Office XP, does not play nice with modern operating systems. Also there are a lot of security risks in using unsupported ancient software. The solution is to get a newer version of Office.

    Theoretically no doubt.. Even with 'nix are there benchmarks?

    It's 1803, actually - and yes, Excel 2002 crashing in 64bit 1803 (but not in 32bit) is a known bug with 1803. There is also a known fix that has just been found...

    I found the update that killed Excel 2002.
    Uninstall & now it will work.
    Security Update for Microsoft Excel 2002 (KB2541003).

    Turn off Update Options for other MS products or it will install again.
    Restart.

    @Bree you are on the pulse..

    BTW:
    On Ubuntu there has been good results for x64 vs x86

    but still.. Windows 7: Is 64-bit version better in performance comparing to 32-bit? - Quora

    What differences are between 64 bit and 32 bit windows 10?
    The main difference is that a 32bit OS (x86) can only address a maximum of 4GB. As this address space has to include any video ram in that 4GB there will be typically 1.1GB 'Hardware reserved'. This mean even if you have 4GB installed RAM, only 2.9GB will be addressable and available for Windows to use. An x64 OS can address virtually all of that 4GB RAM with only a few MB as hardware reserved..
