Excel: Can't insert ActiveX objects

Hello, New to MrExcel. I know my problem is posted in other threads, but I can't seem to find any solution. I have Excel 2007, and I have a workbook with ActiveX checkboxes on the worksheet. I also have a macro that ties the worksheet to see which checkboxes are ticked or not. I was using this file for past year or so, but all of a sudden, I cannot tick the checkboxes. Furthermore, the macro is giving me an error message saying "Object doesn't support this property or method". The workbook is unprotected, in case you may be asking. I went into Excel Options, Trust Center, Trust Center Settings, and checked the ActiveX and Macro settings, and they are "Enable all controls" and "Enable all macros"), respectively. I've also tried to open new Excel, and insert ActiveX controls, but none of them work. I get "Cannot insert object" error message. If I take the same file and open with excel 2010, everything seems to work. So I don't think the file is corrupted. I can't seem to figure out what I need to do. If anyone can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
