Excel Restarts when opening file from Mapped drive (UNC and local hard drive open fine)

Last Modified: 2016-04-12
I have Windows 7 computer with Office 2013 and I am unable to open an excel or word file while accessing it from the mapped drive. If I type in the \\server\share and browse that way it opens fine.

I have tried repairing office and remapping drives. If I log in with a different user it works fine.

Any ideas?
