There is one computer in our peer-to-peer Windows network that will not open MS Office files that are stored on shared network drives on other computers. PDFs open just fine, but not MS Office docs. It displays a message that the file could not be found even though I can see and double-click the file. I can right-click and copy a networked file, paste it anywhere on the the local computer and from there it opens fine. It is a Dell Vostro, running Windows 7 (Home Edition). There is another one identical to it that works just fine on the network. I am using MS Office 2007 and MS Office 2003 on the this machine. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling MS Office to no avail. Any ideas on this issue?

You've tried both Office 2003 and 2007?

Have you tried mounting the network drive and giving it a drive letter?

Yes, they are mapped drives (with drive letters). The problem appears whether the drives are mapped or not.
