CANNOT SAVE MS OFFICE FILES ON NETWORK DRIVE

Since a few days ago I have been getting the prompt "Cannot save file" every time I try to save a file to my network drive.  The only thing that happens is a file with the same name is saved with nothing in 0kb.  However if I save it to my local hard disk and than cut and paste to my network drive the file is saved.  I nebver had this problem before and it is happening from any MS Office 2007 application.  My user is included in the Administrators and I have Full Control both as User and as Administrator.  All my Windows updates are installed too.  Any ideas please?
Thanks to all for your invaluable help.

hi

  1. Do you have CA Antivirus ? Please let me know.
  2. OR else the issue is due to corruption of the offline file store in the Client Side Cache  (CSC), this will cause a user to be unable to save Microsoft office documents of any type to  a network drive or folder. Offline folder synchronization might be forced by a Group Policy.
     
     Solution:
     1. Reboot into safemode.
     2. Log in as a local (non-domain) administrator.
     2. Take ownership of C:\Windows\CSC and all subfolders and files.
     3. Delete everything under C:\Windows\CSC, including the CSC folder itself. or if you need to be careful , cut and paste them to another location
     4. Restart computer, log into domain. The CSC folder will be re-created.  Offline file synchronization should now be working and users can  connect and save office documents to network drives and folders.
