Every time i type it always says: this modification is not allowed because the selection is locked

It is due to expiry of th trial period for the office suite application. You will have to enter the 25 character full version product key to unlock it or else you will to purchase the full version product key online.
Alternative way is to uninstall the trial version of Microsoft Office 2007 Standard edition an install the office 2010 trial edition which will be valid for another 60 days.
To download trial office 2010 suite:
You can use the open office suite which is absolutely free. The open office suite will provide the same feature and functionality as the Microsoft office suite.

It simply means your copy of Microsoft Word 2007 is expired. It's not possible even with tools or with any programs, your only option is to buy a full version of Microsoft Word 2007.
Good luck.

Product Key

You had a trial version of office 2007. Unless they provided you with the codes for the FULL version you are out of luck- (and pocket) several hundred dollars. You need to buy office 2007, or get it from some other source. can give you a FREE program which will work in place of micro$oft's money machine (MS office) but if you need full functionality you need to obtain a valid office 2007 key or serial number from some other source. There are plenty of sources out there- I can't legally tell you where though.
all the major maudacturers use this trick with software vendors- they provide a "compimentary" version and after a little while FORCE you to buy it. It's a great marketing strategy since you already are sucked into using it and don't know there are alternatives to paying for it.
