Unable to save (word) file on SharePoint 2010

Thanks to: http://blog.domcosgrove.com/this-file-cannot-be-saved-to-this-location-because-there-is-no-connection/

Building a POC for a client I ran into this issue on my Virtual Box virtual SharePoint 2010 environment; While saving the word document in a document library I would get:
This file cannot be saved to this location because there is no connection

The solution is to open up good old DOS command prompt and type:

net stop sens

(Temp solution..)
Voilla! It works like a charm :)

More perminent solution is to disable the System Event Notification service
