Almost everything doesn't tell us what you have done so far...
OK, sorry. I have for instance re-installed the program. I have also
deleted the 5.5 version just in case it was disturbing. I have made new
files, but no access to them either.
I think that is about all I have done. Please give me suggestions what
more to test.

Have you tried choosing Window > Control? I think you're trying to find the Control panel at the top of your screen which allows you to change font size etc.
And your operating system?
If you removed any earlier version after the CS5 installation, you probable did some damage to the common files, so you should reinstall one more time. Also, since we don't yet know what you mean by locked out, resetting the workspace might help, or resetting the prefs. See Replace Your Preferences
