I am getting the following error message after working on an excel spreadsheet and then trying to save it.

"Your changes could not be saved to "File Name" But were saved to a temporary Document Named "xxxxxx" (Random Characters).  Close the existing file and then open the temporary document and save it under a new name."

So, The changes are saved to the temporary document. but you can not delete the Original document.  There is no error, you click delete and it just goes does not do anything and the original stays intact.  You can open the Temp file and have access and make changes.  This is a very bizzare issue.  

About the Enviroment -- All workstations are Windows XP SP1 - Office is Office 2000 SP3 Premium.  Running on a network with a Win2k File Server running active directory and Exchange (only 1 server in the organization and problem seems to be network wide although some systems experience more than others)  Running Norton antivirus Corporate edition 8.1 (As we speak I am upgrading to 9.0 but doubt this will fix the issue)

Any help greatly appreciated.
