MS Word - Password protection

  GlasgowMary 09:53 06 Dec 2003

I stupidly password protected a word doc and have forgotten the password.

I've tried downloading password crackers from the web but, as they are demos, they will only unprotect passwords of up to 3 letters.

Does anyone know of a utility that will crack the password for me. I only need it for this one file so a one off demo would be great.

I've done the same thing a few times but couldnt find any password crackers unless I pay for em... *sob*

we can't support requests for password cracking software - for reasons that will be obvious. I have no doubt that your request is perfectly genuine, but some people might ask for help with cracking passwords to files which they have no right to see.

Sorry - you'll have to try guessing your password. It was you who set it in the first place, so with a bit of patience you're bound to come up with the right answer.
