    Hello,

    I am having issues with Word and Outlook 2003. I just upgraded them from 2000 and now I am running into a couple of issues. Help!

    Microsoft Word 2003
    - Can't highlight or select an area on my Word page with my mouse. I can use my keyboard, but that becomes quite annoying as you can imagine.

    Microsoft Outlook 2003
    - Can't highlight or select an area on my page with my mouse. I can use my keyboard, but that becomes quite annoying as you can imagine.
    - Can't open Word document attachments only. I can open excel, pdf, etc..., but not Word.

    I have restarted my pc, reinstalled office 2003, erased the normal.dot profile, removed the 11.0\Word\Data registry and no luck. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Are these files being opened in the protected (read only) mode?
