MS Office 2003 Stops Opening Files

In September of last year, Microsoft released Service Pack 3 for its Microsoft Office 2003 system.  Along with fixing numerous bugs, they seem to have caused another.  To sum things up, Service Pack 3 disables a users ability to open pre Office 2003 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc) documents.

Today I got a call from one of my users with the error message "You are attempting to open a file type that is blocked by your registry policy setting."
