Windows 7 - cursor won't highlight

Asked By De on 19-Aug-08 08:35 AM
In a word document, I can't highlight with the cursor. I can only use the
arrow keys and back up erase for any kind of formatting. I tried "protect
document" but it doesn't look to be activated.

This is only happening in Word... I can still highlight/manipulate in emails
and other programs.
