Check your Internet Explorer (yes, IE) Security-Settings and if you are 
connecting to the share via the server IP add the IP to the IE trusted 

Some time ago my users had problems opening Office Files. This was 
caused by the IE-Security settings. The users were connected to the 
share via IP instead of the server's netbios name, so Windows thought 
the file was downloaded from the Internet and blocked it.
