    Have you checked the path where the file system stores your documents. Click on the file icon in the task bar, scroll up to the "documents" section at the top and right click on properties, then click on location to check the path.

    I have chosen to save in Documents or Desktop, it doesnt seem to matter where i tell it to save to that error message appears.

    Even if i just go to overwrite the existing file i cant save.

    Instead of Microsoft Word, how about free excellent alternative. Try downloading LibreOffice and see if you can save those documents...BTW, it will save in all Microsoft Word formats plus its own "odt" format. If the documents can be saved, then you probably have a corrupted Microsoft program and might try re-installing it.

    It's more than likely a permissions problem. Check the permissions on your Username/Documents folder and make sure you have access to it, IE Full control.

    Highlight your Username and check the permissions. In your SS you have System highlighted and of course it has Full rights.
