Hello.

We have a strange problem in our company:
Some users have the problem that a Word 2007 document (.docx) is made write protected during editing or saving it.
In some cases it is possible to save the file many times but sometimes the file gets write protected and it can only be saved with another name.
This is done automatically by word and it can not be reliably reproduced. It happens to documents which are stored locally on the system,
e.g. in the library 'documents'. I`m not sure whether this happens to documents which are stored on network folders too.

It only happens on systems running Windows 7 (Professional) with Office 2007.
The clients are member of a Windows Server 2003 based Domain.

Does anybody know this issue and has a solution or a hint?

I`m looking forward to gettings answers.
Thanks a lot.

Bye
