Office 2010 opens everything as read only

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a beta version of Office 2010 (to see if I should get the full version) and I am running it on windows 7 however, the problem is that every document I create gets saved as read only and even though it is already saved if i click on the disk logo (to save it again) i get the "save as" window again. It happens the same with excel or word files. Why is this happening? I have the same version on another computer and it runs just fine.

Thank you
