This modification is not allowed because the selection is locked

I know it's a problem with the "Full Version" but please verify that you are not using a trial version of the software. This typically happens when the trial edition has been left unactivated therefore it goes into a reduced functionally mode.
Other than that, the document you're trying to open may be marked as final or is protected.
Here's a helpful link.

I hope this helps.

When trying to type to insert into MS Word the following error occurs - "This modification is not allowed because the selection is locked.

You're using a free trial version of Microsoft Office - good for 25 uses only - then it locks you out
of being able to modify your own files, and also locks you out of being able to create new files.

Can't get to my pc.

Without more information, you aren't going to get any help. This sounds like a common protected document problem in Office, not an operating system problem. Do a Google search with the phrase "this modification is not allowed because the selection is locked" and INCLUDE THE QUOTES. Otherwise: Operating system and version? Application version? More details about when the message appears?

My Keyboard won't type on Word program.

It seems like your trying to type into a locked document, which means that your keyboard is working, its not the issue, the issue is the spesific file which is locked, try another document / file or turn off the lock from office settings if you can find it.
