Windows 7 Office 2000 All Word documents are read only - can you help

I have Office 2000 and I like it, I moved it over to my new Windows 7 laptop and moved all my Word docs over and now I can't do a thing with my word files - they are all read only. Can anyone help me please?

How did you move them? Did you copy therm to CD/DVD then copy them to the new computer?

The easiest way to fix this is to open an Elevated Command Prompt. Change to the Documents directory and run the following command:

attrib -r /s /d *.*


That will reset the Read Only attribute on all files and folders in the current directory and all sub directories.

Click on Start, type cmd. Right click on cmd.exe at the top of the list and select Run as Administrator.
Type cd \users\yourusername\documents and press Enter.
Type attrib -r /s /d *.* and press Enter.

Ztrucker,

Thx for the prompt help. I down loaded the files from Carbonite-not a good choice, very user unfriendly and made a real mess of my file structures.

I can't see a Start command anywhere on my Windows 7. there is a start menu, but no command entry line. very strange. Any ideas where i should look?
