How do I unlock a document in Microsoft Word

Guest

I am having trouble with my computer and I am in college and need to type
papers. However, whenever I open up Microsoft Word and begin to type, at the
bottom of my screen it reads, this modification is not allowed because the
document is locked. I tried to unlock it but I do not know how and I need to
type papers immediately. Please help me as soon as you can.
Thank You,
Engracia

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
2003. 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.
