documents appearing as read only

  lolly2cats 10:29 06 Nov 2013

Ever since my computer performed a massive update from Microsoft i.e. over a 100 updates?? even though it is a scheduled programme I cannot edit a lot of the documents I have saved previously as they are now read only. As these are documents I need for work then I am struggling. I keep getting the message that there is a "problem with Microsoft Office Open XML converter", but I have not idea what this means or how to resolve this issue.

What office suite were the documents made in as they appear to be converted to use in MS office?

Have you tried right click the documents and select properties and untick read only.

the command line command to remove all your read-only attributes is :

attrib /-r .doc

but only run this against the folder your documents are in
