The security gods in my place of work removed (in their infinite lask of wisdom - well, this is government) 2 tabs from Internet options window for IE: program and security. I have a user who is having difficulty opening docx files from internet based appl. (Siebel); it opens fine outside of web. It opens fine on my PC and other users PCs. When I log on his PC, I also have same problem - when you click on docx file, it is immediately treated as zip file and you get pop up window with only "save" option but no "open" option. Hence he has to save it to the desktop and then open it. I have made sure that all the file/program associations are correct in windows for docx (Microsoft Word XML Document). Sooo, I am wondering if somebody can show me a "back door" of fixing this - in registry. I have seen only few posts re. this "zip" issue with docx file and each time I was directed to go to Internet options and click on the Program tab and then try to associate docx with word or something to that effect. I appreciate any help. :)
