One day, I went to my employment documents to find ALL of them where locked by Word 7. I have been able to open them in Works but I rather use Word (favorite). If not, will have to use Works:confused:. Any suggestions?

It could be because you have not activated your Microsoft Office software.

Or because you have an expired trial version of Office (which Word is part of).
Trial versions of Office come pre-installed when the PC is new. It's not built-in to Windows, so you only get a trial version of it.
When the trial period expires, editing or creating new Office documents with it is blocked.
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."
