    Unable to save file which saves as read-only

    I use to do lot of document works on my PC. I use Microsoft Office Word 2007 to do it. Now I installed windows 7 and I used windows XP previously. The problem is whenever I save the file, it saves as a read-only file so that I cannot able to access it. Tell the procedure how to overcome this problem and how to avoid such kind of problems too. Is this the problem with the operating system or with the software that I installed!!!

    Re: Unable to save file which saves as read-only

    This problem arises when the software was wrongly installed. So completely it is a issue with the Microsoft Office where there is no such issues with the operating system. Re-install the entire Microsoft Office. Then open the Word document. Prepare the document as you want. Then go to file and click Save As and then Select the file type at the time you save the file. For Example:.doc for word files, .xis for Excel and so on.
