SOLIDWORKS not playing nice with Excel on your new HP?
Found an interesting group of programs associated with HP that will crash SOLIDWORKS while inserting a design table.
HP has felt compelled to add a new security agent called "HP ProtectTools Security Manager" as an add-in for Microsoft Excel. This tool also uses Device Access Manager, Privacy Manager, and Drive Encriptor. There is no ability to disable the tools. They must be uninstalled from the control panel and that is all have to be removed to get the HP ProtectTools Security Manager uninstalled.
A few reboots later and you will be free from this problem.
