This operation has been cacelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer GPO settings

hi

OK I am currently TS an issue where a user gets the following message when you goes to save a file as  in ms word 2010 This operation has been cacelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer I thought it might be a currupt reg key so i tested him on a different computer with the same result and even on our test PC with the same result then I created a user that mirrored his cridents. placed a test account in the same OU with the same members of and i cant reproduce this error on a different account. Any thoughs.

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

Open in new window

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.

You want to update all of your users?

Is the map set through GP or a login script?

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.
