Its a strange issue that Microsoft are yet to fix. I've had this error numerous of times,
With many different issues causing it,
Sometimes, changing the default printer can resolve it. How? And why. I have no idea.
Office gets its security settings from ie, so in some cases a ie reset can resolve it too ,
In the past, I've manually cleared the office temp folder. And that's resolved it
Having open office installed can cause this too, along with power poi t viewer.
