Hi

Does this happens only to files created by MS Office or in general. I
saw you mentioned .TXT and .ZIP, but what about files from other
programs you have? What can you say about security permissions of your
accounts, do you have only Read permissions or all the permissions,
like Modify, Write. Open Windows Explorer and right click on the hdd.
Go to Properties, on the next window go to Security. Where it says
Group or Usernames click on ADMINISTRATORS
(name_of_your_computer\Administrators) {in my case is
Atdheu\Administrators}, after you have highlited it, check the security
permissions there, all the permissions must be checked to Allow (except
special permission).

Best

P.S.
Try to update your service pack to SP2, here is the link for the SP2
