Default excel hijacked the cursor

I have a user that frequently has trouble with excel 2000. While editing spreadsheets, the cursor anchors itself in a cell and refuses to release it. When she tries to click on a different cell, it highlights the range. When she tries to save the spreadsheet, using mouse or keyboard commands, it will not save. She is unable to close it either.

I have reinstalled office, and even rebuilt the laptop (wiped the hard drive and installed Win2k again), but the problem persists.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? The computer has the basic office programs, Acrobat, Cisco VPN, like all the others in the office. She is the only one experiencing this excel problem.

Any help is appreciated.
