Lost ability in MSWord to make ANY changes to ANY document

Somehow when I open a document in Word, it will not let me do anything other 
than open the document, print and close, everything else come up 'faded'- I 
can't even make changes anymore, and i've tried restoring my system to an 
earlier date, but nothing-

Version of Word? If it's 2007 and someplace on the screen it says something 
about "This modification is not allowed because selection is locked", it 
could be that you've been using a trial version that's now expired or you 
haven't properly activated your full version.

Are you opening the document by double clicking on an attachment to an email 
message?

If Word 2007, try this:

If an earlier version, try the Detect and Repair option under the 
Help menu.

Hope this helps.
