    Have been unable to use my MS Office applications for the past three months
    because the dialog box captured and uploaded in the link below keeps popping
    up. My checks in the various fora suggests that I may have mistakenly tweaked
    something but in Windows rather than Office. How do I reverse whatever I may
    have done in error. The deatails of the problem are captured in the link
    below;

    Thanks

    No, all the details are not in the link.

    What operating system?
    What version of Office?

    In File-Properties:
    Have you checked to see if the file is read-only?
    Have you checked to see if you have permission to modify the file?

    What "tweaks" did you do three months ago?

    Hurray! Got a response! Thanks Alan. Here are answers to your questions;
    Operating System - Vista Home Premium
    Office Version - MS Office 2007 plus

    The files in question (all of them) are mine so issue of permissions dont
    arise. However, I have gone to the lenghts of checking file permissions and
    even granting permission to 'Everybody' on the laptop since I am the only
    user! I have also had to repair and even re-install Office, yet no dice.
    Which is why I suspect it has to do with Windows OS rather than the Office.

    Besides, its not that I can't open the files, its just that I can't make
    additions to or even creat new files (all applications) without the said
    dialog box popping up and preventing any inputs.

    Dont remember if I actually tweaked anything.

    Hope there is a solution to this. Thanks

    You didn't answer about the read-only properties of that file.
    I don't follow why you are talking about "files" when your link shows
    one AutoCorrect file. Did you check that one?
    BTW, I have Vista and Office 2007 and I don't have that particular
    ..acl file (though I don't use Office much)

    When you say "can't make additions to or even creat new files (all
    applications) without the said dialog box popping up and preventing
    any inputs.", do you mean that literally?
    i.e. do you mean non-Office apps or all Office apps?

    Hi Alan
    I didnt chk the attributes of the file identified in the dialog box.

    I talked about 'files' because I get the dialog box when I open existing MS
    Office files or try to create new ones.

    Yes Alan, literally on all Office Apps!

    But the good news for the benefit of others that might run into the same
    problem is that I got a heads up from the Window Vista forum which has helped
    clear up the problem. The solution is to get the patch from the links listed
    below and to apply the 'TakeOwnership' directly on the file identified in the
    dialog box.

    Here are the links:

    Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7 or Vista
    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...ership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/

    How to Add Take Ownership to the Context Menu in Vista

    Take and Grant Full Control Permissions and Ownership in Windows 7 or Vista
    Right Click Menu
    http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/...rship-in-windows-7-or-vista-right-click-menu/

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How to Take Ownership of a Item in Vista
    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/67717-take-ownership-file.html

    How to Change Folder Permissions
    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/157304-folder-permissions.html

    ===================================================

    From a message by Rehman F.
    Here are the steps to modify ownership and permissions of folders and files:

    1. Right-click the file or folder, click Properties, and then click the
    Security tab.

    2. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

    3. Click Edit, and then do one of the following:

    · To change the owner to a user or group that is not listed, click
    Other users and groups and, in Enter the
    object name to select (examples), type the name of the user or group,
    and then click OK.

    · To change the owner to a user or group that is listed, in the Change
    owner to box, click the new owner.

    4. If you want to take ownership of the contents of the folder, select the
    Replace owner on sub containers and objects check box.

    5. Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message:

    You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folder name.
    Do you want to replace the directory
    permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?

    All permissions will be replaced if you click Yes.

    Note folder name is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of.

    6. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that
    you want for the folder and its contents.

    Additional considerations

    7· An administrator can take ownership of any file on the computer.

    8· Assigning ownership of a file or a folder might require you to elevate
    your permissions using User Access Control


    And in case we have lost track of what started all these, here is the link
    to the dialog box again showing the troublesome file:
