Limited users word from web

by Trolo123 / November 9, 2006 7:47 PM PST

We use an online third party database, one of the functions on that databse is to open a word document.
So clicking on the function button launches word. However this does not work i.e. nothing happens if the user has a limited account.
Giving the users Administator accounts has it's own problems, having done some testing and examined the registry I have been unable tyo isolate the difference.
Any ideas??

thanks Glenn

That's what is supposed to happen under that scenario.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
