Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
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?
