Having a real weird issue. A few excel files sent to my office open fine as Administrator. However, as a standard account it opens with all of the cells shrunk and the formatting completely messed up. You also can't see what's in the cells. Some of the other tabs work fine though which is really strange.

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
It ended up being that the fonts in these files were different. For whatever reason the fonts were located in the Administrators user profile. In the Windows fonts folder there were shortcuts pointing to this file in the profile. I couldn't delete the shortcuts and add the real fonts so I just gave read access to the fonts folder in the administrator profile and it all started working.
