Two of our users have complained that all of a sudden when they open Word 2010, the blank document shows "Security Warning - Macros Disabled" in a bar at the top of the page, with an option to 'Enable Macros'. If they then click 'Enable Macros' they get:
File in Use
Normal.dotm is locked for editing by 'Username' (their username)
Do you want to:
* Open a Read Only copy
Create a local copy and merge your changes later
Receive notification when the original copy is available
If they click OK (with first option selected) the blank document opens NOT in read only mode. If the open another blank document they don't get the 'Macros disabled' message.
If they then exit Word and re-open, it does it all again.
The same thing happens if the open Word by double-clicking an existing Word document in Explorer.
This does not happen for all users (i.e. it doesn't happen for me).
In the end I copied Normal.dot off my PC and used it to replace it on theirs. Now they are both happy again (and that is really what our job is about...keeping the users happy!)
