I have Windows 2000 Server.
All users have Windows 2000 Professional

For every user, I removed the user from the administrator group on his local machine (security policy requirement).

Some users can not run office applications now.

Anyone can help?

Check the file permissions on your office directory - it may be that these user have insufficient permissions.

Alternatively, check the permissions to the shortcuts if you have created or copied new ones

You will need to do the following:
Make every user backup his data.
Logon as administrator on the machine
Delete the user profile from the machine
Log out, and let the user login again
Retrieve his data
