10) you can use one of the password recoverer programs available on the
internet (eg. Advanced Office Password Recovery etc.) Just google it, I

There might be a REAL PROBLEM...! Because Microsoft Office won't give up so easy... Unless you have saved online your password files-protecting... you have not too much to do. But luckily there is a tool that will help you A LOT. Download and install the OFFICE PASSWORD RECOVERY UTILITY (available HERE), open the file you
want to recover and press the button. It adds the file to the "Working"
folder and depending on the size of the file it will show you that the password recovery was an error or a success. More details you will have HERE.
<p>If you have read the novel "<span>The
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo</span>", you must remember that there was a
character said free programs were available on the web to <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/wordpasswordrecovery.html"><b>break MS Word password</b></a>
protected document. If you did a search then you will find that there
are thousands of free download of word password breakers. All of them
said MS Word document that are password protected can be opened easily
with a few minutes. Is it true? This article will tell you.<br />
<p> <br />
<p>For what it's worth, it is my understanding.
Microsoft Word offers three levels of password protection. These
protection methods can all be used together or separately:<br />
<p> <br />
<li><b>Password to open:</b> Requires a user to
enter a password to open and view the document. If the Word
document was set a password to open, the entire MS Word file is
encrypted with the RC4 stream cipher.</li>
<li><b>Password to modify: </b>Requires a user
to enter a password to read and make changes to the document. When
the Word file was set a password to modify, the password can be
viewed or changed with a hex editor.</li>
<li><b>Read-only recommended: </b>Prompts the
user to open the document as read-only if they do not need to make
any changes to the content.</li></ul>
<p> <br />
<p>In some case, your document was protected
from editing and do not really encrypt the underlying document, so a
malevolent human could open the underlying XML of the docx file and
edit it directly. Other forms of password protection actually encrypt
the file. If you do this kind of password protection then the file
should not be opened without a password. Malicious users could still
try to open the file with a variety of techniques, but it would be very
difficult. Some of these techniques include:<br />
<p> <br />
<li><b>Brute force and dictionary attacking:</b>
this attack basically involves the Word password breaker tool
trying every possibility of every password to see if they
successfully <b>break word password</b>. So the way for
you to combat this attack is to set a strong password. </li>
<li><b>Rainbow tables:</b> Word password breaker
didn't need to know how Microsoft Word saves its encrypted file.
If it were possible to get hold of the hashed password and the
encryption algorithm used, a rainbow table might let you <b>break
the word password</b>. </li></ul>

The only way to break the code is to download one of the codebreakers available on the Internet. The problem with these programs is that they basically try a random set of characters until they find the right ones. Depending on the complexity of the password the person chose, even with a powerful computer, that can still take a long time. Normally the programs do allow you to set certain parameters. If you had some rough idea what the password might be it would reduce the time drastically.
There are a few programs out there that claime to be able to "break" the password out of the file allowing you to acess it without restriction. I've never actually tried any of them. If you want to take the chance on one of them just make sure you save a copy of the file in a safe place in case the breaker corrupts your file.
