When saving change the name of the attachement

By default Outlook (if opening a file) it defaults to a temporary file path within the user profile.
To test this, open the file directly, then goto file save as, and check the path before hitting save.  Save to your documents folder etc.
More likely than not, it will be the local temporary internet files folder....
I'd check that you don't an older version of Adobe Acrobat installed, as this sometimes can cause issues.
Check via task manager, for any acrd.exe active processes in the background, especially if you don't have Adobe Acrobat reader active and open.
Then file save as to the desired location if issues persist.

The fix for this problem was to turn off Enable Protected Mode at startup in the Adobe Reader.  This problem has been solved.
