Windows 8.1 Saving to Network

A problem just arose on a Windows 8.1 computer connecting to an SBS Server.  This is just ONE computer out of 20.  The computer was previously connecting okay for about a month.

I can open documents on the network server though a mapped drive or UNC but I cannot save the document back to the server.  I've tried multiple documents, even notepad documents.  Again, I can open anything on the network share but can't save it back to the network server (same or other network share).  I can save locally to the desktop.

I stopped Trend Micro from loading an any other program that could be a culprit.

Running a malewarebytes scan on it now.

When I log into the same computer as an administrator, I get an error in it trying to find the network share.  So, I can't even open up the document.  

Any suggestions?

Hi.

For a test: restart it like this: press shift while selecting restart. This will let you boot into troubleshooting options. The plan is to select safe mode with network drivers to rule out any program interference. Does it work there?

Thanks.  It wasn't a network driver issue.  I realized that the problem was accessing certain subfolders so I moved the location of those subfolders to another folder and it seems to work okay.

This was a good approach.  It didn't solve the issue here but worth trying.
