Cannot open sharepoint docs in edit mode
Posted on 2011-02-22
Our sharepoint server is managed and hosted by our corporate office, and us local IT are only responsible for managing permissions for users.
One of my users is having a strange problem. When he clicks on a file, he does not get a prompt to open the document in Edit or Read only mode. He only gets a prompt saying "some files can harm your computer......etc"
what is strange is that when he logs on to another computer with the same user crednetials its fine. this leads me to believe the issue is local. He as got "Full Control" on the site that he uses.
He is using Windows XP SP3 with internet explorer 7.. Any ideas on what might be causing this? Am i missing a service that should be running or a registry tweak that may be needed?
