The fix for this is described in the help, along with other guidance for using Excel data.

If you are using the current version of Office you should install the 2010 driver, not the 2007 one. It is linked in the help:

Understanding how to use Microsoft Excel files in ArcGIS—Help | ArcGIS Desktop 

Alternatively, you can save as .xls or .csv, loading those does not require the Excel 2010 driver installed to load to ArcMap.
