It heavily disturbs Microsoft Office 2010 when the user tries to format axis of diagrams in Excel or in Word. The cause is the presence of some Office 2007 component in this Installation. So the user should remove this software. I 've just repaired two computers - now Excel 2010 runs fine in ist diagram function.
