File permission error Word 2007

I am using Office 2007 on my office network, Microsoft SBS 2003, with security groups and shared drives.  When "user_b" tries to open a Word 2007 document created by "user_a", they get a "file permission error";   "User_b" then clicks "ok," the document opens, then user_b must make a change of any kind (type a character, hard return, etc), then "save."  Then they can work with the document.  Is there a problem cause by a temp file?  Security Settings?

We did not have this problem in Word 2003.  I tried adding the shared drive as a "trusted site" in Word 2007, but could not because the "security settings" would not allow.  
Thanks for your help.

is word on user_a's pc still open?

Sounds dumb but i came across a similar issue with outlook 2007 where if you create a folder using the 'Save As' dialog when saving a file, outlook seems to retain hold over that folder until outlook is shut down.

It may be a similar principle here.

Or it may be a permission issue of the folder that is on your share drive.

What type of antivirus are you using?

Also try disabling offline files, in Windows Explorer. Tools, Folder Options, Offline Files.
Uncheck Enable Offline files.

Not sure if this will work but try disabling the Norton office addin.

To turn-off protection for MS Office documents, click "Settings" and under "Computer Settings" find "Microsoft Office Automatic Scan" and change this option to "Off".

It seems there was a file permissions error fixed with the release of Symantec Endpoint Protection v4.... is that what you're using?

"I figured out what was causing the issue with word saving and wanted to follow up. I disabled the security risk portion of Endpoint and my users are now able to save. Hopefully Symantec can fix this sometime so I can fully use Endpoint."
