    Have you tried leave the password blank and just hitting enter? Have you tried logging in safe mode? try holding shift down while windows loads up.

    So you are unable to use your computer at all because the password locks you out?

    It could be a virus, Not 100 percent sure but many of the bigger virus scaning companys have a free scanner. Mind they wont fix them but but it will let you know if you have one, As for your password problem I need a little more info When does it ask for your password when you start up? Can you close the password box and still use your computer?

There's a password every time I use the Microsoft word and what password I would type?

Whatever password you set up for it.
Try no password - sometimes non are set but the computer asks and a blank space is fine. If someone sent you the file - they could have password protected it - so ask them for the password. If something is password protected its not supposed to open easily!
