Selection is locked

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

Please advise on how to unlock.

I have tried inputting the Product key and registering MS office, so that
was not the issue.

RE: Selection is locked

Did you activate the product? To check this, use the Help menu or, in Word
2007, Office button | Word Options, Resources category.

If Word is in fact activated, try renaming the Normal template with Word
closed (for instructions, see
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/apperrors/...cnotblank.htm). Then restart Word
and see if it works properly.
