I can't open Excel through Remote Desktop on some users

I have Win Server 2003 and Excel 2003. When I am logged in as administrator, i can open Excel and save. When i log in as another user through remote desktop, i can't save the spreadsheet. It says Microsoft has encountered a problem and needs to close. This happens every time. Then, when I close the spreadsheet, i get a popup saying "C:\ is not accessible. Access is denied". Why can't I save a spreadsheet? And if that last popup means i need to give permissions the C drive for everyone, that will not be secure. How do I save a spreadsheet through RDP successfully and get past these two issues? Thanks!

May be you've closed whole drive c? If you select "save as" in Excel, what can you select? Try to check rights for user's folders
