A user came to me with this problem:
      
Running Win 7 64 bit
Office 2007
Internet Explorer Version 8.0.7600.16385

 "when I go to click on a link on the web from a google search that is a MS office document, it never lets me get it, just sends me back to my home page (I can right click and save to get it however)."

As usual, thanks in advance,
JPertchik
