Outlook 2007 "Blocked File Type" Error

    I have 50 identical HP dc7900 workstations running XP Pro SP3 and Office 2007
    Professional SP2 on domain. All 50 have the following Office 2007 .adm files
    added in the c:/windows\inf folder: excel12.adm, office12.adm, outlk12.adm,
    word12.adm, ppt12.adm. All 5 of these .adm templates have been added under
    "User Configuration / Administrative Templates" in gpedit.msc. I am using the
    Word, Excel & PowerPoint .adm files to "block the saving of .xml file types".
    While no such policy setting exists for Outlook 2007, when users close out of
    Outlook, the following message appears "Microsoft Office Outlook - You are
    attempting to save a file type thatis blocked by your registry policy
    setting". This message is to be expected when an end user tries to save a
    ..docx, .xlsx or .pptx file within Word, Excel or PowerPoint, but why does it
    appear when closing out of Outlook? As a side note: end users do not have
    administrator rights. Thank you.
