Sometimes word fails to exit properly and can leave a process running
even when you think it has been closed. Run task manager and look for
winword.exe in the process list. Click to select it and then click the
end process button if its there.
Pooter has been turned off several times since then, no winword.exe
No there ain't.
Secondly, look in the folder containing the file you want to open and
see if there is a word temporary file there with a similar name. If
there is, then delete that.
Might be worth checking the file ownership permissions then. Open a
command prompt (type CMD into the Run box if necessary), go to the
directory with the file in question and type
Compare the result to that of a file you can edit.
It may be that the non editable file is not read only, but your username
