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.

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

Open in new window

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.
