Kind of a wierd problem here, we have made a few directories with delete being denied by ntfs security.  This is creating a problem with office documents.  Everytime you open a office document, it is creating a temp file which doesnt disapear when closing office applications (as normal).
Thanks in advance.

Give system account full permission to that folder.

What version of Office do you have and what version of Office is this file?

There was a thread recently about a problem where users had XP and files were 2007 and a temp file was being created.

Yes when you open an Office file, it makes a temporary file in the same folder for application crash recovery purposes.  If you've given the users permission to create and not delete then what you're seeing would seem to make sense - unless the temporary file is not actually deleted from under the security context of the user.  Therefore I'd be interested to know if dkumar's suggestion fixes it.
