How To Password Protect & Decrypt Microsoft Office 2010 Documents


Microsoft office 2010 , the next big buzz from Microsoft after Windows 7, is a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows,and the successor to Microsoft Office 2007.

Not long ago I was just wrote an article about How to Password Protect Microsoft Office 2007 Documents. Now I’ll write a similar article about office 2010 by popular demand.
Microsoft Office 2010 indeed simplified the process to password protect and encrypt office documents. Which was considered a commendable improvement over password protecting documents under Office 2007. as the new process for Office 2010 is consistent across the core Office product line which including Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010 etc. so here I only need to show you how the process just once using Microsoft Word 2010 as example.
Follow the step-to-step guide To Protect A Word 2010 Document Using Built-in Password Encryption
1. Click the File tab, then Click Info. On the menu to the right Click Protect Document and
Click Encrypt with Password.

2. The Encrypt Document dialog will appear, Type in a password and then Click OK to finish.

Please note – It’s very important to use a STRONG Password or Pass Phrase to protect your word document. Using a long PASS PHRASE (IE:I enjoyed myself today!) however with 10 or more characters will significantly increase the encryption strength of the document and decrease the likelihood someone will be able to break the encryption and gain access to your document.
After setting a password, your document should be protected!
Having password protected your word document? Someone should ask what if I forgot the password. So that’s what I’ll show below.
Follow the step-to-step guide To decrypt Word 2010 Document Using word password recovery 5.0
With this user guide, even a new user can fully control Word Password Recovery 5.0 in less than a minute.
Step1: Click “File>Open” in the Menu or the “Open” button to browse in the Word document.


Select your file in the Open File window, and click “Open“.

Step2: Select “Brute-force Attack (Trying All Possible Combinations)“.

Step3: Click “Start” button in the Menu to initiate the program.

Step4: The program is searching the password. Some time later, a message box pops up to you, displaying the expected password. Click “Remove All Passwords from the File” to remove all passwords (Password to Open and Password to Edit) from the file. Click “OK“.

Following this article, you could password protected your office 2010 and decrypt password protected office 2010 with ease.

I need to acess the BIOS on my PREsario s4020WM but i need a password to do it is old and was my parents so i cannot figure it out so i jut need the options of what the password would be or how to reset it


Disconnect the power. Remove or reset the jumper near the cmos battery. Connect and turn on your computer for a minute. Turn it off. Reset the jumper to it's original setting and you're done. Put everything back together and you're good to go. Good luck!

the above is a link to a wiki about your compaqs; if she has one of the models that only has 333 mhz processors, then most stuff for nowaday is NOT gonna work...she just wont have the processor power. If she has one of the later models, that has a 1.2 G or higher processor, then that's not the problem.
Is she running XP? if she's still running win98, then that's a problem too... its been out of production a LONG time.

Blank screen on desktop (dell inspiron 530s); requesting a password.


Someone has turned on the BIOS password on you and therefore the PC will not let you boot up unless you enter the correct password. The problem is you cannot turn off the password option unless you know the password. I would start by asking other people who had access to you computer what they set the password to. If nobody comes clean, then you will have to call Dell Tech Support to get them to reset the password for you. They will give you a master BIOS password to override the one set and turn off the option.

Bios password lock


It is my understing that Windows XP was asking for a password and you chenge the one in the BIOS

Now the BIOS is asking for the password that you put when you say you resetted.

Please enter the password that you put in the BIOS and let me know if you are going to get a different screen other then the blue square with the picture of a key.

I have a compaq Presario 2200 and I need to password when I turn it on. I heard there is a way to fix/bypass this. Can someone please help me?


Usually the Administrator account is not password protected.
Press F8 right before Windows Logo shows up and boot to safe mode. Log on as administrator and change your user account's password in Control Panel->"User Accounts"

Urgent matter forgot password


Unplug your power source open the case and remove the battery, wait 60s put the battery back and turn on the computer. I think than you will not be waken up and you will be able to access BIOS as well.
