I installed MS 2007 and it worked fine for a while and then suddenly it no longer allowed me to use my mouse on the actual document at all. I can still click all the features, etc. but there's no point in that if I can't use my mouse to edit already existing documents. Help!?

If MS Word prompts you to enter a serial number when it starts, your copy of MS Office is a free trial. When the trial runs out, the program will have limited functionality just like you mentioned. MS Word will allow you to read a file, but not write in the document.
In order to continue using the copy you have, you will have to purchase a license from Microsoft.com. But because the release of Office 2010 is right around the corner, they are having a promotion, which will allow you to upgrade to Office 2010 for free if you purchase a license for 2007.
The trial copy, when it expires will not allow you to copy/paste. If you need to edit it urgently, open the document in WordPad. A free downloadable alternative to MS Office, is Open Office, which works quite well.
Well luckily for you Windows comes with it's own editor very similar that many users don't even know about. It is called Microsoft Works Word Processor. Search Microsoft works in your search bar and you will see it pop up. This can open those microsoft word documents for you to edit.
You can open docx extension files only with MS Office 2007. If you wish to open it in earlier versions you have to save it again in compatible mode. Click on File (top left most corner with the logo), Save As, Word 97-2003 Document. Just using Save option will save your document as "docx" and not "doc" document.
I have come across this problem before (I presume you are talking about word docs??)
This is a fix that MAY work... Give it a try.
Start, Accessories, Run
Enter "regedit" and hit enter
Now look into:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office 12.0\Word Find the "Data" folder and rename it to "Old-Data" Start Word again and the problem should be fixed.
be very careful when editing the registry though. In fact I would
recommend that the first thing you do when in the registry editor is to
click 'File' and select 'Export'. This will take a backup of your
current registry settings.
From the look of the things I can guess two things.
1. The MS office 2007 that you are using currently is a Trial Version and it has expired OR
2. The Document you are trying to open is protected.
If it is the first case, please purchase the software to work on it or you could download from among the lots of freewares around the internet which does the basic work that MS Office does.
If it is the second case, kindly go to the Review Tab of the Ribbon. Click the Protect Document icon (right end of the Ribbon) & click on Restrict Editing & Formatting. At the bottom of the pane click the Stop Protection button (If there is no password you will be allowed to revise the document. If prompted for a password and you do not know what it is, you cannot make changes anywhere in the file.
Trust this helped.
If you have the product key, you can simply install the program on the new computer and uninstall the program on the old computer. To move files you created with using Microsoft Office you can copy the files (usually in My Documents) to a flash drive or a CD or other medium to copy on to your new computer.
That's not a problem with Vista, rather it's most likely a problem with the web server. Make sure you entered all your web server information in correctly (pop3, SMPT, etc), and make sure your mail server supports MS Outlook 2007. Just double check everything. If that doesn't work, try completely un-installing and re-installing Outlook 2007. If all fails, try downloading a 3rd party mail application and see if that works.
