I have been posting a lot recently. I lurked for a very long time, 5 months, messing around with alfresco. Instead of hitting my head against a wall I thought I should start posting here. Hopefully it will be less painful :)

The problem:

When I create a shared workspace in Microsoft word 2003, a new sharepoint site is made. I want to disable this functionality. I will be creating all the sharepoint sites necessary. Is there a way to disable this auto generation of sites while still keeping the sharepoint service?

2nd bonus problem:

Also, in Vista, if I attempt to join "", an error comes up saying "Invalid URL". This works just fine in Windows XP…

Is there a workaround for this?
