File Encryption problem

Hello,

Thanks for taking the time to look at this. I have recently completed some work on a Word document and attempted to open it at my place of work. Unfortunately, whenever I try to do this anywhere other than on my computer, it asks for file encryption passwords. This is fine, as I know them. However, it always says 'in use by a another program' - when Word isn't even open on the computer! How is this possible? What do I do?

Thank you so much

Microsoft Word document protection has some features that will cause a document to be opened Read Only by anyone except one specific user, so if you have that turned on... it could cause your problem.

So on your home machine, go to Tools->Protect Document... and disable any document protection you have enabled there, then try and bring your document to work and opening it. If you need your document protected, try to see if you can make the protection password-driven only, and not have any user-driven protection.

I can't find my auto saved document


Step 1:
What sort of document IE: word , excell , office ......

Microsoft Word's AutoRecover feature periodically saves your document while you're working in it, even if you forget to save it manually. If you close the document accidentally, Word closes improperly or you unthinkingly write over a document or change something important, this function can save you from losing all your work. Although Word doesn't AutoSave constantly, it might have automatically saved your lost document more recently than you manually saved it. Word 2010 makes this rescue process even easier than earlier versions of Word; it stores all recently AutoSaved versions of your documents under the "File" tab.

Open the document for which you lost information. For example, perhaps you were working in a document that you had previously saved, but then Word closed and you lost your most recent work. Click the "File" tab. Click on the most recently AutoSaved version of the document under the Versions heading, next to the "Manage Versions" icon. An Untitled, Unsaved Document b> Open Microsoft Word. Even if you never saved the document, and you can't find the file on your computer because you never gave it a name, Word might have saved a version of it. Click the "File" tab. Click "Recent" on the left column of the File screen. Click the "Manage Versions" icon at the bottom of the middle column. On the drop-down menu, click "Recover Unsaved Documents." Word presents an Open dialog box, taking you directly to the Unsaved Files folder that Word automatically created. Click on the document that you want to open, then click "Open" at the bottom of the dialog box. Click the "Save As" button on the yellow bar that appears above the document, below the Ribbon; in the pop-up menu, give your document a name, choose its storage location on your computer and click "Save."

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.

PDF encryption, set PDF password and recover PDF password


PDF encryptionGenerally, PDF files are with a password called User Password, which is used to open the file and view the document. To encrypt a PDF password does not simply mean you can’t open and view the document, but PDF files have five to seven encryption ways to protect the file for office needs. Owner password, the other password of PDF files, is another crucial PDF password, which is to protect the file from maybe being copied (to Clipboard), printed, or modified, etc. So, in speaking of PDF password, it doesn’t necessary mean the one which you use to open the file.
PDF encryption largely relies on the sophisticated algorithm that hardly to be reversed. For example, you are easy to calculate that 1000 plus 1 is 1001, however, the reverse is seemed impossible, for 1001 can be an answer of countless calculations. PDF encryption works in the similar way. In this sense, given a password, it’s easy to deduce and decipher some data; however, the reverse PDF password recovery seems impossible.
Generally speaking PDF encryption with 128 bits key value is much more secure than that of 32 bits. PDF encryption is accomplished by a key value, either 128 or 32 bits in size. When using the key, all the bytes are changed (unless they are decoded back with the same key) into meaningless codes, and the file is impossible to be opened. Only the meaningless codes are calculated back using the correct value is it possible to get the correct password and open the file. 128 bits has a lot more possible values than the one with 32 bits, so it is much more secure. If your password is forgotten and intend to recover PDF password, PDF Password Unlocker software could be faster, for it supports 128 bits encryption, either 128 bits RC4 or 128 bits AES encryption.

PDF files are composed with objects, like image Objects, graphic Objects, and text Objects, etc. The key is calculated for each PDF Object in the PDF file using local data, which is much hard to crack, as the key keeps changing.
Set and remove PDF passwordsAdd a PDF Password1. Click the Secure button pdf-encryption-and-pdf-password-recovery_clip_image002.jpg in the Tasks toolbar, and choose Password Encrypt.
2. Click “Yes” to the prompt about changing the security, and if necessary, type the Permissions password that lets you change security settings. If you don’t know the password, contact the author of the PDF.
3. In the Password Security - Settings dialog box, set the security options as desired, confirm the password, click OK, and then click OK again.
4. Save the document to apply the security settings.
Note: You can also restrict editing capabilities when you certify a document, or when you apply a policy to a PDF.
Remove PDF passwords and security settingsYou can remove PDF passwords and security policies from an open PDF if you have the permissions to do so. If the PDF is secured with a security policy that resides on a server, the changes can be made only by the author of the policy or by a server administrator.
1. Do one of the following: Click the Secure button pdf-encryption-and-pdf-password-recovery_clip_image002_0000.jpg in the Tasks toolbar, and choose Remove Security.
Type your password, and click Yes to the prompt about removing the security.
In the Security tab of the Document Properties dialog box, choose No Security from the Security Method menu.
2. When prompted, specify the Permissions password, and then click OK. Recover PDF password in case you forgot it.Every coin has two sides. Even the PDF document is strongly encrypted with passwords, it is impossible to insure that it is secure. Once you forgot PDF password, the data in the encrypted PDF file are on the risk of unavailability. Unless fortunately the password knocks your memory again, you got the data lost or you have to give up the document eventually. With the ever-growing of strong encryption algorithms, decryption algorithms gradually come into existing, too. Though the cracking is far more difficulty than ever before, it is still of help to those expecting to recover PDF password and access the password protected PDF file. Take PDF Password Unlocker, a popular PDF password recovery software, for example, it has adopted the advanced decryption algorithms to crack 40-bit RC4, 128-bit RC4, 128-bit AES, and 256-bit AES encrypted passwords with 3 attack methods, Dictionary attack, Brute-force attack, and Brute-force with Mask attack

Dropbox flashing


Quote from TIA James... it works!

Very recently, possibly after update to 1.0.10, I have noticed a peculiar effect, more so with XP than with Vista.
On opening any folder inside my Dropbox, the window constantly refreshed and flashed for some time, longer if more files. Attempting to scroll down caused the scrollbar to flick back to the top. After some attempts, everything settled down. The folder would then not behave this way again. The effect stopped if View was set to list or details i.e. not thumbnails.
I guessed that Dropbox was attempting to sync the thumbs.db file, but this file was being updated by windows at the same time and a conflict occurred.
I have unchecked "Cache thumbnails" (Tools/Folder Options/View tab for XP) for the Dropbox folder and the effect has ceased.
Query... is the new version incorrectly handling something here? This effect has only recently occurred. But it has occurred on all computers, some XP some Vista. All have updated recently.
TIA James :)

Special documents that are very private that have to be emaiked to London but other info with those documents do not need to be included


What is your question..? as this is very vague.. If you wish to email private or sensitive documents, I would suggest encrypting them using Windows inbuilt encryption system or visit one of the many download sites and search for file encryption. download and install your choice and then send the decryption key or keys via a different email or fax etc.. You can also use the built in encryption in most file compression software and make the file self decrypting and decompressing with the correct passcode which you define and which you can send to the recipient by some other means or a different email.

Deleting file from Excel also from recently created documents.


Hi jv_oberg,

The recent documents area of excel is just a snapshot of what it last opened, it's not really linked that document to excel. Eventually, after you open enough documents it will fall off the list. However, if it something that you would like to change, you can

  1. Click on Office button, and then click on Word Options (in Word 2007) or Excel Options (in Excel 2007) or PowerPoint Options (in PowerPoint 2007) in the bottom of Office Menu.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Display section.
  4. Set the value for Show this number of Recent Documents: to 0 (zero). no-of-recent-docs.jpg
  5. Click OK button.
  6. Repeat steps above again, and set back the value for the number of Recent Documents to show to its original default, i.e. 17. If you don’t want this particular Office 2007 application to remember any Recent Documents, you can leave the value at 0 and skip this step.


That will clear your recent documents.

Good Luck,

Mark

the file maybe too big to process, try printing the file in different method, like separating the sequence, divide the prints into parts in this way spooling will be easier and it will be queued anyway and will print, just be mindful of pages and sequence
