Try right-clicking the file - click properties, take the tick from the read only box.

there are issues with Microsoft Windows XP SP2 & Microsoft Office 2000 click here

You could try a repair of Office 2000 maybe.

Can you tell us exactly what messages you are getting please.

Try ticking read-only on a file - opening it, closing it - unticking read-only then open again - is it still read only.

Are they protected forms?

Can you do a "save as" with a different name - will they open for editing then?

Try renaming the normal.dot template - when you open word it will make a new one - does it work correctly then?

On re-reading this post, I am now a little confused as to whether the Update was the Operating System Windows 2k to Windows XP
Office 2000 to Office XP

djbenny could you please clarify
