Unable to edit cells in MS Excel 2007...

I am unable to edit cells in MS Excel 2007. When I click on a cell, a fuzzy border appears, followed by an error message (unable to enter). Even pressing the F2 key does not help. Not only can't I edit a cell, I can't save the file, close the file, or even quit Excel. It seems to freeze up. What gives?

Anybody have any ideas out there?

    My excel 2007 does exactly the same. When I press the round menu button, the ony thing that is not greyed out is Send To Bluetooth. I cannot select anything else. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office 2007, but still the same. I am running thison a 64bit Vista Ultimate.

    It used to work file for about 6 months I think. So I am guessing it must be an update.

First, I went to the office button on word 2007, went to Program Name Options, went to Word Options, click on Resources and then about. I had no product id in the field, so I contacted Microsoft. They had me verify my product key, then transferred me to another tech guy. I ended up un-installing all MS office products and then rebooted. He then sent me to a site where I downloaded a clean copy of office 2007. Once downloaded, I installed, opened MS word, and entered in my product key. I activated over the internet, closed the app, went back in, and then I was able to work in the application. Turns out that the product locked after 60 days and would not let me do anything until I had an activated product key. I hope this helps.

When you open file click on is your file only readable then you will not be do anything. Find your EXCEL FILE IN BROWSER AND RIGHT CLICK AND THEN PROPERTY. NOW SEE IF YOUR FILE IS READ ONLY. IF YES THEN CHECK IT AND MAKE SURE IT IS NOT READ ONLY.

Unable to burn movie to DVD/CD

You can't burn a DVD movie using a COMBO drive or Compact disc rewriter, change your movie format from DVD to VCD and then try again, I recommend you use nero to make/edit movie and ImgBurn to make ISO image and burn it onto disc.

How do you do borders in Photoshop please

The easiest method to make borders on your images is by using the ‘stroke' command in Photoshop.
To do this, start by pressing “Ctrl-A” to select the entire image, go to “Edit” on the menu, select “Stroke”. You will then choose how thick you want your borders to be in px (pixels), what color, and where you want your border to be placed in the image (inside, center, or outside).
Hope this helps.

Corel x2 problem: Unable to Load Library when sharing to VCD

Hey everyone, I faced the exact same, excruciatingly frustrating problem. After a quick search, I found forum threads telling me that when Corel Video Studio was modified to suit Vista, something about its 3D transitions got messed up.

So, if you face this problem while using Corel Video Studio on Vista, check that you have removed all 3D video transitions and try rendering again.

Scanner problems

I have the same problem. What I've been doing is scanning each page individually and then cropping them with Photoshop before importing them into Acrobat as a group. My HP 2840 AIO is scanning them into A4 format, and in order to correct that, I've tried what HP online chat assistance suggested: re-installing the software; but I still have the same problem. They then told me it must be my operating system. When support troubleshooters pass the buck, technology simply stops working. If this doesn't solve your problem, please let us know.

Hope this will FixYa!!!
