I would recreate his profile.  Sounds like it may be corrupt.  Don't delete his current one yet, but create a new one, like joe.user1 and have him test it.

Where is he trying to save the file to?

Have you audited the ACLs there? Can the test account save to the exact same directory? (C:\Users)?

Run the following from the command prompt as well, to make sure GPO is applied correctly

gpupdate /force /boot

it was the save location it looks like all users save to a mapped drive. but all the office saveing is to the full network path so i changed it to the drive letter and it stoped throughing that message. anyway to change all the defualt saved locations at once

You want to update all of your users?

Is the map set through GP or a login script?
Glen KrinskySystems AdministratorCommented:
Was the save location manually set for this one user?  Generally speaking, the UNC name is a better bet because people can map the same letter to different locations.  It is odd that is would not work with the UNC.
