SBS2003 R2 server with a share on it that three XP machines access, two machines have no problem, one machine opens every file as read only, If you check properties of the file from this machine read only is not ticked.

Any ideas?

Hello sp0tta,

how are the security permissions on the folder/file?

it was permission based, but I cannot exactly remember what i did to correct it. I got a reminder that I had open questions, so i quickly accepted your answer.
