I am having issues with Vista and windows 7 machines periodically not being able to save Excel files to the Network drive.  I get Document not saved when trying to save and then excel creates a temporary file in the directory on the server.   Some times the Excel files become corrupt and when trying to re-open the file excel tells me that it can not recover the data because the corruption was to great.   I have no dropped packets or tx or rx errors being reported by the switch.  The server has nothing in the event logs indicating that there is an issue.  In the clients security log I get Event ID 5159, 5157, 4565 fail to audit.   Windows filtering platform has block a bind to a local port and windows filtering platform has blocked a packet.  I have windows firewall disabled through group policy.  I have been wrestling with this issue for about 2 weeks now and I cannot figure this out. It only happens with Excel files.  Users have to save the files to there local machines then copy them to the server.    Server is server 2008 x64 stan with 45 user cals   I have minimal policys setup nothing sofisticated.  I have tryed changing registry values on clients for resilancy and suppression Policy with no change to the issue. Office versions in use are 2003 pro and office 2007 enterprise
