I tried to check in the file to the site. But I got this error message

(The system cannot find the file specified (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)). 

I'm able to check out the file, edit, and even save the file successfully. I never have this problem before. I'm not sure how to fix this.

This is my environment: SharePoint 2010, Office Standard 2007, Windows 7 Professional (Build 7601) operating system and Internet Explorer 8.

This is what I have for the IE addon:

I do not have Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Support install in my Microsoft Office.

Are you checking in the file from Excel or from SharePoint?

Try an IISReset.

Do you have SharePoint plugin installed on your installation of Office? All Programs -> Office -> Change -> Office Tools/Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Support.

Also, do you have the plugins necessary in IE to perform Checkout? They may be disabled. IE -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Programs -> Manage Addons

IISReset may help you out here as suggested by @Mike – neo269 Aug 11 '12 at 8:42
@Mike I'm checking in from SharePoint. I do not have access to the back end. – yyc2001 Aug 13 '12 at 15:39
Whenever you edit the document, does it say Read-Only at the top of Excel? – Mike Aug 13 '12 at 15:46
No because I edit the document in edit mode. – yyc2001 Aug 13 '12 at 15:51
That's not to say it will kick you into Read-Only mode. It happens often. What about Internet Explorer security? Is your SharePoint site in the trusted or local intranet zone? – Mike Aug 13 '12 at 15:56
