some user are having issues accessing files on documents located on DFS networkshares. MS word  shows contacting \\server\DFSlocation.... on the bottom left hand corner. Outlook shows a popup screen saying the same. The screen comes and goes. if you press ESC key this will stop and the actual folder will show.
thanks

i does not show on the add and remove programs. it seems that ms office 2010 has it build-in.
