Microsoft Word Forgotten Old Password

  darran_p 21:04 31 Oct 2003

I have several microsoft word files which were password protected on an old 486 shared computer. They were created a few years ago (around the time of 'Word 2') and I would now like to be able to access them on an up-to-date PC.
The only problem is - I can no longer remember any of the passwords and so I cannot open or preview the documents.
If anyone knows a program in which I can preview and save these files or of a way around the password protection then please let me know.
