User must be Power User or Admin to open attachments in Outlook 2003
Posted on 2007-11-14
I have quite a few machines where all users were put into the Users group and removed from the Local Admins group. I now have one user only who now cannot see embedded images in email or copy attachments to thier desktop unless they are in the Power Users or Local Admins group. The error they get is "There was an error when copying the file." Upon second attempt the error will read "Cannot create a sytem semaphore." This insatll of Outlook is a typical install with no folders being in a custom location. The user has full control of thier profile folders. All else appears to work ok on the machine. I have done a detect and repair of Outlook, a complete uninstall/reinstall of Oulook. I have yet to force the user to create another user profile or a complete reinstall of the machine. I have may others users with the same OS (Win2k), OfficeXP, and Outlook 2003 that are not having these issues. Any advice?
