    Typical.

    Way back with Office v X they made a similar mistake, by giving only administrator-users read access to the normal.dot.
    All other "non-admins" couldn't read it, and thus got an error when starting Word. It was easily fixed, but still... it gives you the impression they don't care so much. Weird. :rolleyes:

    Wow... And they screwed up the ownership rights with Office 2004 installs as well... So no big surprise they got it wrong. Again.
