|Subject:||Office 2003 Folder Redirection and Denying Access to C|

I am a Network Admin at a public library. I use a group policy to redirect
our patron users My Documents folder to the desktop using the following path,
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Desktop. All use the same domain user
account to login to the public workstations. Now, I have started to upgrade
all the public workstations to Office 2003. When a patron goes to open a
file from within any Office 2003 program, he/she receives an error message
that he/she does not have the necessary rights to view the folder. If the
user clicks "OK" he/she can browse to a flash drive, floppy or the desktop
with no problem. The reason the user receives this warning message is that I
also use a group policy to restrict access to the C drive. If I disable this
policy, the patron users do not receive a warning message about the rights.
Is there a way to prevent this message from displaying while still using the
combination of GP's I currently employ? We have a Windows 2003 domain.
