Question about Computers & Internet
There is no "official" way around a forgotten password in Microsoft programs. Microsoft's website states, "Microsoft support professionals cannot assist, under any circumstances, in the breaking of passwords applied to files and features within Microsoft programs."
You may be able to locate a service or a utility that could attempt to crack your password. Usually there is a fee, although some are free (see link below -- "buyer" beware, and virus-scan any software before installing!)
Moral of the story: Use password protection only when absolutely necessary, and make sure you've got a foolproof way to recall the password later. You might wish to install a free password manager from a reputable site such as Download.com. I keep my passwords in a protected memo file on my PDA. That way, I only have to remember one password to gain access to everything.
