Are you Administrator on the Machine? , Sounds as if there could be Policys in force on the Machine
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


No...but I can assure you we do not have a policy where this would need to be turned on. In fact, this problem just arose....it never existed before.

Expert:  James K. replied 1 year ago.
Thanks


I mean group policy that stops you from removing the check box.

You will need an Administrator account , to resolve this , as that check box need to be removed

Or you can reinstall Office if you have the Disk >>

You will lose no Data?
