I am getting error 1706 for a limited user in XP Home. I have tried this solution: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/258847/en-us ( I had to download a GPEdit add-on). I have messed around with it quite a bit and the funny thing is this only happens when I try to open an Office program from a desktop shortcut icon. If I open the Office program first and load the file manually, it loads correctly. I have had this issue when I upgraded another computer to XP Pro and the link above solved it, but no such luck with XP Home. Thanks for any help!
