I think maybe everyone is focusing on IIS too much. I don't think Office is
making a request to IIS (and there is nothing in the log to give me that
impression either). It just can't load the VB environment or run a macro.
But that happened after running the Lockdown tool so I was wondering if
anyone had heard of that side-effect from running the lockdown tool before.

Thanks for the reply.
