CANNOT SAVE FILES IN EXCEL

I have Office 2010 running on Win7.  I cannot save a file in Excel, but in each of the other programs Word and Powerpoint, e.g., I can save a file.  I use Excel most.  I installed MS Office, Home&Student; it worked for a while then about a week ago, I could not save my work in Excel.  Tonight I uninstalled Office and re-installed it.  Same result. It is useless unless I can save my work.  What do I do? 
This is the way it goes.  I open an existing file, change it and try to "Save". An error msg appears saying, "Errors were detected while saving. . . MSExcel may be able to save it by removing/repairing some features. . ."  I click "continue" as requested and dialogue box appears displaying the folder and file name, but without the option of changing the name, location, etc.  I click on the name of the open file then a new dialogue box asks if I want to overwrite.  I click yes and a final box appears, saying "Document not saved."

I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Some troubleshooting for version 2007, but I guess it could work for
version 2010 too:

It also could be a security program that is interfering with Excel.
