Read only file on save

Our VAR suggested we upgrade our EPDM to 2011 SP4 (from SP3) to try and fix file viewing issue.


Since the update, whenever we save a file it is saved and converted to a read only file. What is strange is that I can restart my computer, create a new part file and save it to the desktop and it is still read only. I do not have to login to EPDM and hence the file is not renamed or altered.


I tried uninstalling EPDM from my machine, new part in SW and save - file is fine.


Reinstall EPDM and back to square one - All new files whether in or out of the vault are read only.


I should point out that 'read only' is while the file is open in Solidworks. So if I press save twice, the second time it will prompt me for a new file name (and that file will be read only). If I open the saved file from the desktop or EPDM it is no longer read only in SW.


Anyone had any similar issues with EPDM SP4.0?
