Hello, you will need to purchase the full version of Microsoft Office 2007 to be able to make changes, it sounds as if yours has expired.

This document is password protected for modifying the contents, you need a password to unlock the document. If you are not the owner the document, ask to the owner for password then you can modify it.

Hi i cant edit my documents on 2007 microsoft office, its saying locked modifications

You may have the document open twice. I would completely turn off the computer and then start it up again and try to open them.
Occasionally I will run into a similar problem, so what I do is copy the document and paste it into another doc. Then you should be able to edit it. Then delete the first doc, as it may have become corrupt.

How to unlock locked Sony VAIO documents?

Right click on the documents (or the folder containing the documents)
Now select "properties"
Depending on what version of windows you are using there will be some differences.
On Windows 7 for example, you now click on the "General" tab.
You will see a check box for "read-only". Make sure this is turned OFF and then click "apply".

Good luck.

When I try to type something in microsoft word, it says the modification is not allowed because the selection is locked and I cant type anything.

If this only happens in one particular document, try opening that document and clicking on Tools | Unprotect Document.

If all new and existing documents are locked for editing, then it's probably because you have not activated your Word/Office software, or because you have an expired trial version of Office. What happens if you start Word and click on Help | Activate Product? If you are already activated, a dialog box saying so will appear. If you are not activated, the Activation Wizard will start. If you have an expired trial version, a dialog box will prompt you to enter a valid product key or purchase a key online.

Please let me know if this has been helpful or if there is anything else I can do. Thank you.

Unlocking folders on a laptop

The problem is that user name he changed and the registered user name is not the one now, you have to choose the old username or user who created the file first he can only edit or open and its a security issue. Try to right click and choose properties and make it readonly then open and select all copy it and create a new file and paste the content and save it
