PowerPoint files saving as TMP without warning
I'm currently having an issue where PowerPoint files are saving as TMP files rather than PPTX, I'm are not sure what could be causing this to happen.
It doesn't appear to happen at any particular time and we get about 45 per 1 hour period spread across the whole hour but only during lessons.
It happens from several rooms across the school (all based off the same image however).
It has affected staff and students but much less for the staff.
Our setup is the following;
Windows server 2008 R2 (for student areas)
Windows Server 2003 SP2 (for teaching staff areas)
Sun Microsystems San 7210 (for support staff areas)
Windows 7 X64 SP1
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Immediate thoughts are my documents redirected to a location where the user doesn't have full control?
Format convertor getting in the way (but I would expect that more with 2003) - is it installed by mistake?
Could also try giving users on a couple of machines local administrator access - to rule out an over zelous security policy messing things up.
These intermittant issues are a serious pain to track down - you have my sympathy!

Thanks for the reply BatchFile
Users have full control to their user area's.
When you say format converter do you mean the office 2007 compatibility pack? if so its not installed.
Ill try and find a few students that I could try with local admin and see what happens.

Yeah I was thinking the gadget that lets office 2003 open 2007+ file types - that sometimes does funny things if it's on a system where it's not needed and it's just the sort of thing that I'd put in a GPO and forget about!

Is the problem just with PowerPoint point files or other file types as well? Are you using offline files? If so you should check that it is working properly on all client machines.
