MS Word 2008 - No, I'm not doing anything illegal

by Bella0660 / July 14, 2011 11:05 PM PDT

Just wanted help in opening a document that I created a while ago and I forgot the password. I saw a few product that said they could open it, but I didn't want to trust it until I got some real advice. I'll just look somewhere else for help. I thought this might be the place, but I guess not. Thank.

Thank you. I start this document along time and put password on it because I let my family use my computer. It was a private document...more diary like, and now I stupid can't get back into because I have not idea what I chose as the password. I guess it's a good password since I can't get in. I just want to make sure if I use any links they don't make my computer vulnerable to outside predators. Thanks for the info. I'll let you know if works.
