Are you using Excel 2000? This macro works for me, regardless of the worksheet/workbook protection:

Sub StatusToggle()
If Application.DisplayStatusBar = True Then
Application.DisplayStatusBar = False
Application.DisplayStatusBar = True
End If
End Sub

are you putting the code inside a command button?
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Application.DisplayStatusBar = False
End Sub

if so try setting the TakeFocusOnClick property to false.
