I found an article on this issue but it was for an older version so I don't think it applies.

I found that myself as the adminstrator I do not expereince the problem.   All users are locked down and I assume it is one of the policies causing the issues.

Has anyone else experienced this?   As soon as a user clicks on the icon for attachments it locks outlook and word.

The article I am referring to is 268744

It talks about a registry change to redirect temp files.   First of all I don't know if it applies and second I don't know how to make changes as the policy I have applied does not allow it.   Do I have to disable my policy to make registry changes?

Thanks in advance..

you might try running the compatability script for the version of office you have.

also, was office installed before terminal services, or after?

For anyone else experiencing this issue.   It turns out restricting the drive c access was causing this issue.   Modify the my documents path to point to a mapped drive solved the problem.

Thanks
