Helping a friend with a donated (by her Church) laptop.
It's an old Dell Latitude D630 running Windows 7 with (forgot to confirm this...d'oh) what I believe is MS Word 2010.
Since the laptop is donated I don't know too much about it at this point and am in the process of cleaning it up.
The issue she's having is that every time she creates a new document in MS Word and then opens it up again later, she's being greeted with this:
I deleted out her name, but that is what follows the "for editing by".
This laptop is not part of any Server or Network but I'm guessing that it was (?) at one time.
My first step, based on the old Google search, is to delete all her Temp files and see if this remedies it but wanted to toss it out there and ask if there was anything else I should be looking at or for.
I'll be using the Temp File Cleaner (here from Bleeping) to clean out the old temp files. Still not up to speed on using the CCleaner app to do that, so while TFC isn't the smoothest of apps, I know how it works.
I also wanted to post that at the top of another Word document, I also saw this:
Which is what led me to believe that this may have been set up to be part of a Server Network (not even sure if that is the correct term or phrase...) at one time.
So there you go.
No crisis and certainly not anything that needs immediate attention but if you've seen this and/or know of a resolve, please let me know.
There's a lot of laundry & housecleaning to do, so I'll be popping in and out all day and weekend.
