I have an end user with Office 2003 Basic. In his Word application he is unable to select text with the mouse. The mouse will work in the toolbar and it works just fine in Excel. He can select text with the arrow key, he can edit the document so it is not protected and you can see the mouse down in the document.

I have uninstalled, reinstalled, did the support.dot, removed, renamed normal.dot as Microsoft as said to do with no luck.

Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated.

I only have a suggestion. Perhaps the Doc is protected. >>Tools>>Unprotect Document
