I have a problem. I want to delete a whole lot of files in Word 2000 for windows XP but cannot do so because I am greeted with read only file or access denied. I did ctrl A to change to archive but I get an error has occurred ignore ignoreall retry cancel. How can I get rid of the files please. Liza

Try just taking the tick out of 'Read Only' and not selecting 'Archive'.

If that doesn't work try doing same in Safe Mode.

Highlight the files, right click, select properties, untick read only.

You sould now beableto edit, modify or delete them as you require.
