A problem i am having is that my documents (.ppt .doc) turn into read only document by-themselves. If i just finishing working or opening a document, (sometimes it will and won't) it will prompt me that the document is READ-ONLY.

I went on other forums and it said to right click on the document and go to properties and uncheck the Read_Only box, but it is never check off.

Bottom line is, if i just finished working on the document and close it...next time I open, it turns into a read only doc, leaving me to save as different names numerous times and filling up my desktop space with copies. (i can't erase the originals either until i reboot)

HERE IS what the PPT says when opened:

C:Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Higer Web\powerpoint\01.ppt is being modified by JB. Do you want to open a read-only copy?

It never used to do this but just lately it does alot and has turn time consumng


Thank You
