I am using Word2003 on Windows XP on a company-wide network. Files are on my local drive.   I get the error message "Saving the AutoRecovery file is postponed for "name of document.doc" and the document will not save.  When I try to exit, Word asks if I want to save the document, but will not enable me to do so.  I have to close without saving.  Is there a user-friendly solution to this problem (ex: not having to troubleshoot temp files, etc)?

F mini,

How are you doing?

Trying operating Word in safe mode by going to "start > run > type winword /a and hit enter".
If Word runs fine in safe mode, then check this article out: http://howtotroubleshoot.blogspot.com/2005/10/how-to-clean-word.html

Hope this helps,
Kevin
