I'm using this code to protect the ws.

ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True, Password:="mysecret"

I'm running Excel 2002 on a network so every time I log in, various options are not the way I want them. How would I change the above code to make sure the "Select locked cells" option is not checked? I only want "Select unlocked cells" checked.

Not quite sure what you mean but would this do you?: -

Code:
With ActiveSheet
    .EnableSelection = xlUnlockedCells
    .Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True, Password:="mysecret"
End With
