AutoCorrect File Could Not be Saved

When I open MS Excel files or Outlook emails, I get a pop-up that says 'your autocorrect file <C:\Users\navigation> could not be saved.  the file may be read-only or you may not have permission to modify this file.'

When I close out of the pop-up, I'm able to make changes to Excel.  However, in Outlook, it does not auto-populate frequently used e-mail addresses like it used to.

I just had a system upgrade to Windows 7 ManagedPC, so I'm wondering if that could be contributing.
Any help is appreciated!

You'll find that the file locations have not been set. To correct this go to the round button, select word options. Select advanced. Select file locations (scroll to the very bottom!.) Populate the file paths with the defaults, just remember to keep the start up and user template locations different.

Thanks very much.  What 'round button' are you referencing?
upper left...with the Windows symbol on it. it's where you save documents and print, etc.
