    Unhappy MS Word Save as Lists all network computers

    Hi all,

    I'm having an issue with ms word (Office XP! yes you read that correctly), when a user goes to save as and select the drop list of locations, it lists all domain computers (Server 2003)!

    Any ideas as to stopping this hellishness?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Are you using MS Works or Office XP? I presume the user has mapped network drives? I seem to remember on the Save As window on the left there were options for My Network Places and My Computer.

    Office XP sorry (misspelled word, that'd dyslexia for you)
    Yes all user Home drives mapped to X and folder redirection on My Documents.
    Annoyingly it does indeed have my network places but I'm missing My Computer (I may have removed this in GPO for some reason.)

    As a guess I'd say that's why it's displaying My Network Places. You need to restore access to My Computer.
