Whenever I open my microsoft word documents and try to edit it or even start a new document, it says the modification is not allowed because the selection is locked.


An evil virus has set an ACL (Access Control List) list entry prohibiting you from modifying your own documents - or changed the ownership of your documents to another account on the system.

If the computer upon which your documents reside is not yours, consult the system administrator, who may have reset file or directory permissions. If the PC is your personal box - virus/trojan horse/worm/rootkit/malware/spyware residual damage.

To repair ACL damage, use MSDOS command cacls. How:
1) login as "Administrator"
2. START>RUN> cacls
or bring up an MSDOS command prompt (from cmd.exe) and type in cacls /?

Anyway, the problem described above is a OS/System problem.
The only way I can think of that MSWord would prohibit modifying your own docs is that
you recently upgraded MSWord to Office2010, and your docs were created with an old, incompatible version of MSWord - but doesn't Microsoft have backward compatibility for
older .DOC files?

Microsof word is locked.


Some authors (for example, of forms to be filled out) "lock" their documents under Windows. This is incredibly annoying, as it prevents you from fixing errors or adding anything (e.g., addenda) to the document.
If you web-search on "unlock word document," you get a bunch of pages with advice that doesn't work under Windows XP. (I know, as I've tried them all.) Here is a method that actually works.
that is: word password recovery 5.0, a simple tool to unlock word document within a few minutes.
