    I did not read this previously sorry for inconvenience. Can you please confirm below points:

    1. Is he opening opening office 2007 / 2010 document in his system? because he is installed the office 2003 and there may be compatibility issue. If it is so then you have to install Office Compatibility pack in his system.

    2. Secondly, Just remove the  "winword.exe" from task manager and open the file from sharepoint site and check whether problem is still coming.

    3. Check if there is any virus in his system

    Let us know your result

  • did you try updating your settings in IE.  Add the site to the Trusted sites and make sure the security settings that says automatic logon with current user name and password is checked

  • How long is the path + file name? There is a limit.  I don't recall exactly, but it might be as low as 128 characters.  If you're deep into a site structur with folders, you could hit the limit.
