I just installed Microsoft Office 365 a few weeks ago. Every time I open Excel, I get three "messages" or "files" instead of the normal Excel menu.  Messages include backup.bat, contact info, and an old file from years ago.  I don't want to have to close these "messages" or "files" every time I open Excel.  Is there a way to permanently close them?  Thanks.  

P.S. Incidentally, I have used the old Microsoft Offices for 20-25 years and never had this problem.
