Word font color through remote desktop


I have a really weird one for you.  A user just called me that when she remotes into her computer from another computer on the network and attempts to edit a Word document saved to her home folder, the font is red?  If you change to font color to automatic or black, it does no good.  I opened the document from my PC directly from her home folder and immediately saw that the font color was set to red.  I changed it to automatic and started typing.  It was blue?  I changed the font color to black and started typing again.  It was blue.  I then attempted to delete the text I typed in and got a horizontal blue line in replacement of the text I had typed in?  What the heck?  What is even weirder is the user now sees the blue line, I see, as red?  Anybody seen this one before?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
