Lotus Notes and Attachments

Dear Notes expert,

I have a funny situation happening here with my Lotus Notes 6.5 client and opening attachments. If I open an attachment say in word or excel, it opens two copies, one message stating that it is already opened a spreadsheet with my name do i want to save the copy as read only. How can I prevent this from happening?

is it happening in applications or mails?

if it is mails, then refresh/replace design should work.

I tried replacing design and it doesn't work and it does happen in emails. It does'nt happen when the detach it to a remote location. Any thoughts?
Uninstall the office app and reinstall... this would fix some of the registry issues that might be leading to this kind of problems...
