In order to get rid of this error try to download the sample file from a different location. You have not specified whether you have checked to download different file and have you tried use that sample file to open using the excel 2010. Some times a corrupted file could cause such type of errors.

I would recommend you to download another sample file from the same location and then try to open the file with the help of the excel 2010. This should definitely help you to solve this problem. I would also recommend you to open this file in the safe mode of excel 2010. It might solve your problem.

Re: disable Office Document Cache Handler add-on from IE

I had faced similar problem with my excel too and i finally fixed this issue by disabling an add-on for 'Office Document Cache Handler' from the internet Explorer . To disable this add-on go to Tools -> Internet Options and then the program tab and now click the manage add-ons. select the Office Document Cache Handler and disable it. save the settings and restart the browser.
