Windows 7: Office 2010 Read only when opening documents

Office 2010 Read only when opening documents

Hi Guys long time reader, first time poster.

This is a on and off thing, but when we open a document on a users personal drive (which nobody else has access too), it opens as read only and they cant make changes/save the file.

Selecting "notify" when the document is ready to be edited doesnt respond.
Document has no read-only attribute, nor does the folder level they have full access to it.
This particular user is connected via wireless but the issue occurs on desktops aswell.
We have tried restarting the computer and ending the process.
Also closed the document via server but she still receives read only error.

The weird thing is, if the document is closed and opened 2-3 times on the 2nd or 3rd time it will be in editing mode.

I have searched the net and can't seem to find that much any suggestions/help would be much appreciated.

I would experiment and try this:

Take Ownership Shortcut

Test it on one or two files first and do not try to takeover an entire drive or any system folders.

Hi, thanks for the reply, still receiving the same error when I take ownership of the file. The document keeps opening read only the first two times and then third time it can be edited.

I have also removed the attributes from the file in dos, even though the file says it has no attributes.

I am not sure if this will help, but may be worth a look:
