Hello

We are on a network, normally, if there is a document on a network drive that is open by one person (ie word, excel), and someone else tries to open it, you would get a message saying that the document is in use by "username" would you like to open it read only?

I've created a default user profile that when a new user logs into a computer, all settings such as internet explorer page and other personal settings are set to how we like them. Now the problem is, with this new profile, instead of the message saying the user who has the document open, it now says it's open by "default user profile".

Does anyone know where I can change this so that it would list the current user who has it open? Not sure if this should go to the networking posts, but because it's an office doc I posted here, please re-direct if I'm wrong. Thanks
