Default Microsoft Office locked

A friend of mine just gave me a call and was telling me that all Microsoft Office programs seem to be locked. She can't really interact with them and she gets a message telling her that the program is locked. I know that would happen if she had a trial version of MSO but I'm not sure if she does and neither does she (or her parents, they're all computer illiterate). The computer is only 3 or 4 months old apparently, so if it was a trial version it should have run out after about 60 days right? Anyway, any help in the matter would be appreciated.

And if we fall, we all fall, and we fall alone

The software was a trial only. That is why it is locked. They trial is for only 3 months. So after that time the software locks until you purchase a serial for it.
