Excel 2003 crashes when copy/paste in Windows 7 32 bit Dell E6410

Copy a cell would crash Excel 2003 and some times when pasting it would crash too.

Found the problem with Excel 2003, it is related to bluetooth though, o_0

then I went in ==> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins
and there was an entry for BtOfficeAddin.BtOfficeintergration.1
And change the LoadBehavior key from 3 to 0 and all is working well now.


  1. it was good for me too, thx mate

  2. Thx! This cured my excel crashes, too!
    How did you get to this idea?!

  3. that was good, thanks .. saved me a lot of headaches!

  4. I would like to try this on my machine, but I have no idea how to get to what you are talking about. For those of us less tech-savvy, how do we do this, please? :) Start from "machine is on, now click"... :)

  5. Steps to apply the fix:

    1. Open Notepad

    2. Copy and paste the following lines into notepad:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    "FriendlyName"="Send to Bluetooth"

    3. In Notepad save your file (select the save location to your desktop and name it something like):

    4. Double click on the file you just saved to your desktop. The regedit program (should be associated with *.reg files) will run and you will probably see a security notification about a program wanting to modify things (a dialog box will pop up and every else will get dimmed).

    Excel 2003 on Windows 7 should not crash any more when copying and pasting.

  6. Cool!!! It fix the problem which confuse me a few days.

  7. haha. very good! I don't wanna know how you figured that out, but the important thing is that it fixed my problem! =]
