I have several users in a hundred user environment. All using the same OS with same MS Suite. Add-ins vary from user to user. Not an issue with this particular user.
I have one particular user that I have to visit on a monthly basis to kill his Normal.dot. The file growth in size the last I seen it was at 2,500kb. This is a problem as Outlook becomes slow, and replies take forever. I can easily kill it, let it re-build and it works fine, however, it is not efficient to visit his desk every month.
I’m looking for a way to have it set to Read-Only so that it does not grow. I have tried the common way of right-clicking Normal.dot, Properties, Checking Read-Only. This results in an error when closing Outlook, which then the user has to click OK to exit.
I need clean way to make the Normal.dot read only so it does not grow. I’ve tried uninstalling Office suite. The OS has been re-built two months ago. Not many other users in my environment have this issue. This one person has it on the a monthly regular basis.
