One of our users cannot see the option to check out a document in one of our sites even though he is an owner of that site. His permissions seem to be the same as mine and I can see check out (check out by clicking the drop down list on the document)

Any suggestions?

Both of you are using 32-bit Internet Explorer with 32-bit Office?

If you log in to SharePoint on his computer, do you see the menu option? If he logs in on your computer, does he see the menu option?

He has 64Bit windows 7. I am not sure if IE included with that is 32 or 64bit. He has 32bit office.

I will ask him to log in on a 32bit machine and try and I will try on his.

I had to assist another colleague who had windows 7 64 bit running with ie8.   Quote me wrong, but I think the latest Moss updates, fixes this issue.
