Option to use MS Word randomly un-checks itself

One of our users has a problem where, in Outlook 2003, the option to use Microsoft Word to edit e-mails will disable itself every couple of weeks or so.  It is obviously a simple fix to go back into his options and re-enable the setting but, since the user refuses to do this himself, it has become an annoying resource drain on us to have to periodically remote-connect and do it for him.  We have attempted to do a clean install of MS Office on his workstation but the problem persists.  Can anybody shed any light on this matter as to why this may be happening?

Hi, terpdx.

I've never seen Outlook spontaneously change a setting, so I have to suspect it's either the user or something else on the computer that's making the change.  Is there a pattern to this?  Does the user have any Outlook add-ins, macros, programs that interface with Outlook that might be responsible?

After trying for several weeks to determine why this is happening, we're just going to replace his PC for now and bring it back to our offices to take a look at it.  Most likely, if the problem re-creates itself here and we still can't figure out why, we'll simply wipe the drive and start over with a restored image.
