Choose File>Save as
Navigate to your location and name the file
Click the tools button
Click the General Options
Choose a password for read only

When you upload a file on sharepoint and provide permissions to users, ensure you select the proper permission, only READ not FULL permission.

You can also try this:
1. On the client computer experiencing the issue click on "RUN" then type "RegEdit".
2. go to this path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\Internet a.Note:For sharepoint 2013 the path is 15.0
3.Right click and create new "DWORD" entry and give it a name of "FSSHTTPOff"
4. Double click the new entry and enter 0 for the value.
5. Once done you need to reboot the computer.
